The following changes since commit 822f5845f710e57d7e2df1fd1ee00d6e19d334fe:

  efi/esrt: Cleanup bad memory map log messages (2017-03-17 18:53:12 +0000)

  efifb: Avoid reconfiguration of BAR that covers the framebuffer (2017-04-04 15:56:43 +0100)

Two fixes related to the EFI framebuffer driver:
- Ignore Graphics Output Protocol (GOP) implementations that are marked as
  BLT-only -- the framebuffer base address is invalid in this case, and the
  Blt() method is not accessible to the kernel.
- If the GOP framebuffer base address coincides with a memory BAR of a PCI
  device that has memory decoding enabled, claim the memory resource so that
  the PCI core will not attempt to move it later on.
