Hi Shenglei,

Your explanation makes sense.

Hi Shenglei,

I don't see how this patch is at all related to the previous version of this patch.
What is different from the previous version is that this patch update the copyright year and the "if...else" coding style.

Also, you are introducing yet another new bug with this patch.
Moreover, this bug is unrelated to the previous bug.

Please take a look at the function TestPointGetAcpi(). With your
change added, this function is now broken since Table is a stack
variable and it is not being initialized to zero. This function
assumes that
DumpAcpiXsdt()/DumpAcpiRsdt() will do the initialization to zero on
it's behalf, you have broken this assumption with your change.
I have taken a look at the function TestPointGetAcpi(). The variable Table is first initialized to NULL by DumpAcpiXsdt()/DumpAcpiRsdt(). The reference code is "*OutTable = NULL"(line 667). And it will be assigned a value next. The reference code is "*OutTable = Table"(line 689).

And with my changes, the stack variable Table(equivalent to *OutTable in DumpAcpiXsdt/ DumpAcpiRsdt) can still be initialized to NULL or assigned a value. What I did is intended to check the address of "Table", since there is no point to perform operations to "Table" if its address is NULL.

Thanks,
Shenglei


Both this patch and the previous patch have been made carelessly and I
am not impressed.

Thanks,
Nate

Currently there is no check for the parameter OutTable.
So add the logic that return value EFI_INVALID_PARAMETER when the
OutTable is NULL.
