Capsule update with USBIO in FmpDxe


Hi all,
In \FmpDevicePkg\Library\FmpDeviceLibNull\FmpDeviceLib.c There are comments for RegisterFmpInstaller:

Used to pass the FMP install function to this lib. This allows the library to
have control of the handle that the FMP instance is installed on. This allows
the library to use DriverBinding protocol model to locate its device(s) in the

@param[in] Func Function pointer to FMP install function.

@retval EFI_SUCCESS Library has saved function pointer and will call
function pointer on each DriverBinding Start.
@retval EFI_UNSUPPORTED Library doesn't use driver binding and only supports
a single instance.
@retval other error Error occurred. Don't install FMP

RegisterFmpInstaller (
// This is a system firmware update that does not use Driver Binding Protocol
However, since the ‘RegisterFmpInstaller’ of the example directly returns EFI_UNSUPPORTED, it does not demonstrate how to handle the DriverBinding protocol. In addition, I refer to the example of \MdeModulePkg\Bus\Usb\UsbMouseAbsolutePointerDxe adding the driverbinding protocol to locate the USBMouse device to the 'RegisterFmpInstaller' function. And set the return value of RegisterFmpInstaller to EFI_SUCCESS. where RegisterFmpInstaller is in the following file:

Then tested on Minnowboard.

Test command: CapsuleApp.efi Red.cap
The test results are as follows:

1. During the Capsule update process, when FmpDeviceSetImageWithStatus is executed, ‘USBMouseAbsolutePointerDriverBindingSupported' has not been executed, that is, USB Device IO cannot be operated yet.

2. After USBMouseAbsolutePointerDriverBindingSupported is executed, USBIO can be operated, but at this time 'FmpDeviceSetImageWithStatus' has been executed, that is, capsule update time has passed and cannot be processed.

3. I also refer to the method of Locate spiFlash protocol in ‘PlatformFlashAccessLib.c’, instead of using DriverBinding model, I directly Locate USBIo Protocol, which is written as follows:

Status = gBS->LocateProtocol(&gEfiUsbIoProtocolGuid, NULL, (VOID**)&gUsbIOWDT);

But the returned value is Status: EFI_NOT_FOUND. The file full path is as follows:


My questions are as follows:

1.To operate USB Io in FMPDxe driver, should I use driverbinding protocol in RegisterFmpInstaller? Or can use LocateProtocol directly? Or is there any other way to handle it?
2. Are there example codes of how RegisterFmpInstaller handles the driverbinding protocol or other method such as LocateProtocol?
3. When processing the Capsule update (FmpDeviceSetImageWithStatus), the USBMouseAbsolutePointerDriverBindingSupported has not been executed. How should I deal with it?
Any suggestion is highly appreciated.
