[PATCH 32/32] UefiPayloadPkg: Add build option for Above 4G Memory


Sean Rhodes
 

When build option ABOVE_4G_MEMORY is set to true, nothing will change
and EDKII will use all available memory.

Setting it to false will create memory type information HOB in
payload entry, so that EDKII will reserve enough memory below 4G
for EDKII modules. This option is useful for bootloaders that are not
fully 64-bit aware such as Qubes R4.0.4 bootloader, Zorin and Proxmox.

Here are few comments:

+gUefiPayloadPkgTokenSpaceGuid.PcdAbove4GMemory|1|UINT32|0x00000019
Based on usage, better change to BOOLEAN instead of UINT32 as below
gUefiPayloadPkgTokenSpaceGuid.PcdAbove4GMemory|TRUE|BOOLEAN|0x00000019

+!if $(ABOVE_4G_MEMORY) == TRUE
+ gUefiPayloadPkgTokenSpaceGuid.PcdAbove4GMemory|TRUE
+!else
+ gUefiPayloadPkgTokenSpaceGuid.PcdAbove4GMemory|FALSE
+!endif
Simply change to below.
gUefiPayloadPkgTokenSpaceGuid.PcdAbove4GMemory|$(ABOVE_4G_MEMORY)

+ if (FixedPcdGetBool (PcdAbove4GMemory) == FALSE) {
+ ForceModulesBelow4G ();
+ }
Following EDK2 coding style, BOOLEAN type should not compare with BOOLEAN const.
Change to
+ if (!FixedPcdGetBool (PcdAbove4GMemory) ) {
+ ForceModulesBelow4G ();
+ }


Thanks,
Guo

Yes, please re-send the patch once there is any update.

And please CC the package maintainers when you send patches to edk2 devel list follow EDK2 process.

 

Thanks,

Guo

Yes, please re-send the patch once there is any update.

And please CC the package maintainers when you send patches to edk2 devel list follow EDK2 process.

Thanks :)

I've updated the PR. Do I need to resend the new patch again?

[PATCH 33/33] UefiPayloadPkg: Add build option for Above 4G Memory

 

When build option ABOVE_4G_MEMORY is set to true, nothing will change

and EDKII will use all available memory.

 

Setting it to false will create memory type information HOB in

payload entry, so that EDKII will reserve enough memory below 4G

for EDKII modules. This option is useful for bootloaders that are not

fully 64-bit aware such as Qubes R4.0.4 bootloader, Zorin and Proxmox.
