From: "Cohen, Eugene" <eugene@hp.com>


The UEFI Specification permits Graphics Output Protocol (GOP) instances
without direct framebuffer access. This is indicated in the Mode structure
with a PixelFormat enumeration value of PIXEL_BLT_ONLY. Given that the
kernel does not know how to drive a Blt() only framebuffer (which is only
permitted before ExitBootServices() anyway), we should disregard such
framebuffers when looking for a GOP instance that is suitable for use as
the boot console.

So modify the EFI GOP initialization to not use a PIXEL_BLT_ONLY instance,
preventing attempts later in boot to use an invalid screen_info.lfb_base
address.

Fixes: 9822504c1fa5 ("efifb: Enable the efi-framebuffer platform driver ...")

[ardb: - move Blt() only check into the loop
       - clarify that Blt() only GOPs are unusable by the kernel]
