EFI boot stub.

  x86/efi: Include a .bss section within the PE/COFF headers (2014-07-10 14:21:39 +0100)

 * Remove a duplicate copy of linux_banner from the arm64 EFI stub
   which, apart from reducing code duplication also stops the arm64 stub
   being rebuilt every time make is invoked - Ard Biesheuvel

 * Fix the EFI fdt code to not report a boot error if UEFI is
   unavailable since booting without UEFI parameters is a valid use case
   for non-UEFI platforms - Catalin Marinas

 * Include a .bss section in the EFI boot stub PE/COFF headers to fix a
   memory corruption bug - Michael Brown
