Subject: [PATCH 0/4] efi: libstub enhancements for cmdline parsing and kaslr

This adds support for the 'quiet' kernel command line parameter, so
that meaningless debug prints can be prevented from corrupting the
boot splash (#3)

Secondly, it enables randomization of the UEFI runtime services region when
KASLR is in effect (#4)

Patches #1 and #2 are preparatory cleanup patches. Patch #4 trivially depends
on #2 which is why they are part of the same series.

Ard Biesheuvel (4):
  efi/libstub: fix harmless command line parsing bug
  efi/libstub: unify command line param parsing
  efi/libstub: arm/arm64: disable debug prints on 'quiet' cmdline arg
  ef/libstub: arm/arm64: randomize the base of the UEFI rt services
