Re: [PATCH 02/16] Add system pointer argument to shared EFI stubrelated functions so they no longer use global system table pointer as theydid when part of eboot.c. This code is now shared, so using a globalvariable as part of the interface is not that nice. Also, by avoiding anyglobal variables in the ARM EFI stub, this allows the code to be positionindependent without requiring GOT fixups.
