[PATCH] [efi] Add lock annotations for efi_call_phys_prelog andefi_call_phys_epilog

From: Josh Triplett
Date: Mon Jul 24 2006 - 20:24:52 EST

The functions efi_call_phys_prelog and efi_call_phys_epilog in
arch/i386/kernel/efi.c wrap the spinlock efi_rt_lock: efi_call_phys_prelog
returns with the lock held, and efi_call_phys_epilog releases the lock without
acquiring it. Add lock annotations to these two functions so that sparse can
check callers for lock pairing, and so that sparse will not complain about
these functions since they intentionally use locks in this manner.
