Commit 05fd2a926833
("MdeModulePkg/NvmExpressPei: Consume S3StorageDeviceInitList LockBox")
added a dependency on LockBoxLib to NvmExpressPei, causing builds using
MdeModulePkg.dsc to fail on architectures other than IA32/X64 with
missing reference to
gEfiMdeModulePkgTokenSpaceGuid.PcdDxeIplSwitchToLongMode.

Add a resolution for LockBoxNullLib for ARM/AARCH64 to restore builds.

Contributed-under: TianoCore Contribution Agreement 1.1
Signed-off-by: Leif Lindholm <leif.lindholm@linaro.org>

---

Note: this patch hides the symptom, but this isn't really the fix I
would like to see.

The build error is caused by the chain of:
1) NvmExpressPei depending on LockBoxLib
2) LockBoxLib being mapped to SmmLockBoxPeiLib in [LibraryClasses.common.PEIM]
3) SmmLockBoxPeiLib depending on PcdDxeIplSwitchToLongMode
4) PcdDxeIplSwitchToLongMode being declared in
   [PcdsFeatureFlag.IA32, PcdsFeatureFlag.X64] in MdeModulePkg.dsc

Now, an alternative quick-fix would be to move the PEIM LockBoxLib mapping
into a [LibraryClasses.IA32.PEIM, LibraryClasses.X64.PEIM]
section. But that would leave NvmExpressPei unbuildable on anything not
IA32/X64.

Another option would be to add default declaration (for all other
architectures) of FALSE for PcdDxeIplSwitchToLongMode in MdeModulePkg.dec,
but the current way this is expressed seems to treat this as an
architecture-specific feature (which it is).

What I believe would be the cleanest solution would be to abstract
NvmExpressPei to the point where it can function without the LockBoxLib.
But regardless, it does not look valid to me for something as
architecture-specific as MdeModulePkg/Library/SmmLockBoxLib/ to live under
.common sections in the .dsc. (And if this changes at some point, because we implement an ARM/AARCH64 equivalent based on StandaloneMmPkg, we will need
a major refactoring of that library anyway.)

I think this patch is exactly the right solution.

The code added in commit 05fd2a926833 is gated by (BootMode ==
BOOT_ON_S3_RESUME). That condition can never evaluate to TRUE on
ARM/AARCH64, presently. Accordingly, the stated goal of the commit
doesn't apply to ARM/AARCH64:

    The purpose is to perform an on-demand (partial) NVM Express device
    enumeration/initialization to benefit the S3 resume performance.

Given that the RestoreLockBox() calls are never reached (which is
correct, by design, at the present level of ACPI S3 enablement in edk2
for ARM/AARCH64), causing the lockbox APIs to "do nothing beyond
compile" is exactly right. IMO anyway.

Once ARM/AARCH64 grow S3 support, a functional and secure LockBox will
have to be part of that. Perhaps it will use "standalone MM"; I'm not
sure. The point is, once the goal of the commit starts applying to
ARM/AARCH64, a functional LockBox will have been implemented for
ARM/AARCH64; and that lib instance will certainly not depend on
PcdDxeIplSwitchToLongMode.

Until such time, this patch is fine.

Another way to update the file is

  LockBoxLib|MdeModulePkg/Library/LockBoxNullLib/LockBoxNullLib.inf

->

[LibraryClasses.EBC, LibraryClasses.ARM, LibraryClasses.AARCH64]

Hello Leif,

The current proposed patch seems great to me.

Laszlo convinced me that this change makes sense. But the argument for
that was that each architecture needs to decide itself how to
implement LockBoxLib (or not).

What does not make sense to me is that
MdeModulePkg/Library/SmmLockBoxLib/ is used as a global default, and
set as the resolution for LockBoxLib in common sections, when it is
only valid for 2 of the 6 architectures supported by the UEFI
specification.

My original version is my preferred way of addressing the immediate
problem though, mainly to keep the separate .EBC section.

Hello Leif,

I filed a BZ tracker according to your above concern:
https://bugzilla.tianocore.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1660

We will find an approach to address it.
