Subject: [GIT PULL] EFI urgent fix

Folks, please pull the following fix. It's something that Peter and I
talked about a while ago, and it seems that people are actually hitting
issues without this patch and have been since v3.13.

The following changes since commit c7fb93ec51d462ec3540a729ba446663c26a0505:

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

are available in the git repository at:

  x86/efi: Enforce CONFIG_RELOCATABLE for EFI boot stub (2014-08-05 22:01:04 +0100)

 * Enforce CONFIG_RELOCATABLE for the x86 EFI boot stub, otherwise
   it's possible to overwrite random pieces of unallocated memory during
   kernel decompression, leading to machine resets.
