Re: [PATCH v1] ArmPkg/ArmPkg.dec: New pcd defined for GICv3 ITS

Shashi Mallela

Hi Ard,

Thanks for your comments.
Please ignore this edk2 patch as i have now localised the new pcd
creation and reference within SbsaQemu of edk2-platform.
The edk2-platform patchset has been updated accordingly.

This does not explain why the PCD in question should be defined in
ArmPkg. UEFI itself does not use interrupts other than the timer one
in the first place, so ITS, LPI, MSI etc are also irrelevant to it.

I think it would be better to find a home for this PCD in edk2-
platforms itself.
