Subject: [PATCH 4.4 117/230] Revert "x86/platform/UV: Use efi_runtime_lock to serialise BIOS calls"

4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

This reverts commit 7212e37cbdf99f48e4a6c689a42f4bda1ae69001.

Hedi Berriche <hedi.berriche@....com> notes:

> In 4.4-stable efi_runtime_lock as defined in drivers/firmware/efi/runtime-wrappers.c
> is a spinlock (given it predates commit dce48e351c0d) and commit
>
>         f331e766c4be x86/platform/UV: Use efi_runtime_lock to serialise BIOS calls
>
> which 7212e37cbdf9 is a backport of, needs it to be a semaphore.
