[PATCH v3 0/7] New MM Communicate header and interfaces

Kun Qin

REF: https://bugzilla.tianocore.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3430

This patch series is a follow up of previous submission:

Since the submission of previous patch series, there were suggestions
made to change the entire existing MM communicate header in order to
leverage compilers to catch all potential code that referenced the
original header.

However, although such header structure and/or name change would break
compilers, there are cases where the OFFSET_OF Data fields is calculated
without involving the header structure at all.

Thus patch series v3 introduced MM communicate interface v3 (both
protocol and PPI) to consume the corresponding new header structure. The
new structure fixed ambiguious data field size caused by UINTN, as well
as integrated flexible arrays for data fields, while maintaining the
backwards compatibility for all existing codebases. A specified GUID is
used to differentiate old MM headers from newly defined v3 header.

The specification change is also included in this patch series v3, where
the standalone MM IPL in PEI phase is specified to install new PPI v3
after setting MM foundation.

v3 patch changes include feedback for v1 series:
a. Introduced v3 MM comminucate protocol and PPI;
b. Applied flexible arrays to new communicate header structures;
