Update Notes

  1. Use ShellPkg in Platform DSC/FDF to replace EdkShellBinPkg, because EdkShellBinPkg is removed.
  2. Remove the using of PcdPeiCoreMaxFvSupported, PcdPeiCoreMaxPeimPerFv and PcdPeiCoreMaxPpiSupported
    in platform code as they have been removed for BZ1405.
  3. Remove the using of EmuVariableRuntimeDxe and use the merged Variable driver instead like below as
    EmuVariableRuntimeDxe has been removed for BZ1323.
MdeModulePkg/Universal/Variable/RuntimeDxe/VariableRuntimeDxe.inf {
  <PcdsFixedAtBuild>
    gEfiMdeModulePkgTokenSpaceGuid.PcdEmuVariableNvModeEnable|TRUE
  <LibraryClasses>
    AuthVariableLib|MdeModulePkg/Library/AuthVariableLibNull/AuthVariableLibNull.inf
    TpmMeasurementLib|MdeModulePkg/Library/TpmMeasurementLibNull/TpmMeasurementLibNull.inf
    VarCheckLib|MdeModulePkg/Library/VarCheckLib/VarCheckLib.inf
}
  1. Remove the TCP/iSCSI/PXE drivers in MdeModulePkg for BZ1278. Below components in NetworkPkg should be used to support both IPv4 and IPv6.
[Components]
NetworkPkg/TcpDxe/TcpDxe.inf
NetworkPkg/IScsiDxe/IScsiDxe.inf
NetworkPkg/UefiPxeBcDxe/UefiPxeBcDxe.inf
  1. New working model BZ1409
    has been adopted for the ATA and NVM Express OPAL devices S3 auto-unlock feature.
    The S3 phase hardware (ATA and NVM Express) initialization codes have been removed
    from the OpalPassword drivers. The OpalPasswordPei PEIM now will consume the
    Storage Security Command (SSC) PPI instances to unlock OPAL devices in S3. For
    the new working model, the following PEIMs:
MdeModulePkg/Bus/Ata/AhciPei/AhciPei.inf
MdeModulePkg/Bus/Pci/NvmExpressPei/NvmExpressPei.inf

should be included by platforms so that SSC PPI instances will be produced for
ATA and NVM Express devices respectively. Platforms also need to provide Host
Controller PEIMs for ATA and NVM Express controllers. These PEIMs should respectively
produce EDKII_ATA_AHCI_HOST_CONTROLLER_PPI and EDKII_NVM_EXPRESS_HOST_CONTROLLER_PPI
in order to support the new working scheme. Lastly, please note that the PEIMs
involved here will be executed during S3 resume. As a result, they may not be
compressed, so there will be an impact to the image size.

  1. Unused tool chain VS2003/VS2015, GCC44/GCC45/GCC46/GCC47, ELFGCC/UNIXGCC/CYGGCC, DDK3790, MYTOOLS
    are removed. Please use the latest VS2015 or GCC5 as the default tool chain.
  2. In case that a C function body contains the string of L'', L'\"', L"\"", L''' or L""", ECC tool running under python3 interpreter will report error with code 5005. Please ignore it for this error is false reported. For example, in ShellPkg\Application\Shell\Shell.c, line 212 contains L"\"". FirstQuote = FindNextInstance (CmdLine, L"\"", TRUE) That line will cause ECC tool under python3 report error “The close brace should be at the very beginning of a line for the function [ContainsSplit].”, this error is a false report. ECC tool under python2 interpreter has no such issue.

Update Notes

  1. Core driver(BootGraphicsResourceTableDxe)/library(DxeCapsuleLibFmp) are updated
    to consume BmpSupportLib/SafeIntLib/DisplayUpdateProgressLib. Below library
    instances are required to be added into platform DSC [LibraryClasses] section.
   BmpSupportLib|MdeModulePkg/Library/BaseBmpSupportLib/BaseBmpSupportLib.inf
   SafeIntLib|MdePkg/Library/BaseSafeIntLib/BaseSafeIntLib.inf
   DisplayUpdateProgressLib|MdeModulePkg/Library/DisplayUpdateProgressLibText/XXXXXX.inf
  1. According to the Intelligent Platform Management Interface Specification Second
    Generation v2.0 Document Revision 1.1 (October 1, 2013), a couple of definitions
    get updated within below IPMI header files. 'union' types are used in structure
    definitions that have bitmap fields. This will provide the users with both bit-level
    and byte/word-level accesses to those structures.
    MdePkg\Include\IndustryStandard\IpmiNetFnApp.h
    MdePkg\Include\IndustryStandard\IpmiNetFnChassis.h
    MdePkg\Include\IndustryStandard\IpmiNetFnStorage.h
    MdePkg\Include\IndustryStandard\IpmiNetFnTransport.h
  1. UefiCpuPkg MpInitLib improved the performance by shadowing microcode to memory
    before doing microcode update. The enhancement may cause S3 resume failure because
    the shadow uses lots of S3 resume memory if the microcode file is large and the S3 resume
    memory is small. Platform needs to increase the S3 resume memory size in this case.

  2. Core driver(SystemFirmwareUpdateDxe) is updated to consume new interface
    PerformFlashWriteWithProgress() of PlatformFlashAccessLib. Platform's
    PlatformFlashAccessLib library instance is required to be updated to implement
    the new interface PerformFlashWriteWithProgress().

  3. Remove DxeSmmPerformanceLib from platform DSC, because it has been removed.

  4. Use FatPkg in Platform DSC/FDF to replace FatBinPkg, because FatBinPkg is removed.

  5. BaseTools adds the checker of the guid format defined in Package.dec file.
    It requires (<CName> = <GuidValueInCFormat:{8,4,4,{2,2,2,2,2,2,2,2}}>).
    Otherwise, BaseTools reports the error for the invalid GUID format.

  6. BaseTools adds the check for VOID* PCD max size. Max size is UINT16.

  7. BaseTools adds the checker that the datum type of a FeatureFlag PCD must be BOOLEAN.

  8. BaseTools drops the support to freeze python tools as the windows executable files.
    BaseTools only supports python tools run from source in Windows OS.

  9. If PcdMaxPeiPerformanceLogEntries16 is configured in DSC file to set the maximum number of performance log entries during PEI phase, its value suggests to be less than 880. If its value is bigger, such as 1000, it will cause PEI performance HOB data exceed HOB size limit.

  10. UefiCpuPkg MpInitLib is enhanced to forbidden AP calls PEI services (following PI spec). Exception or hang may occur when AP procedure contains code to use PEI services.

  11. PlatformBootManagerLib adds a new API called PlatformBootManagerUnableToBoot(). BdsDxe driver calls this new API when unable to boot. PlatformBootManagerLib library instance needs to implement this API to avoid build failure. OvmfPkg/Library/PlatformBootManagerLib/BdsPlatform.c contains an implementation to pop up UI; EmulatorPkg/Library/PlatformBmLib/PlatformBm.c contains an implementation to do nothing.
