Merge tag 'efi-urgent' into x86/urgent

 * The EFI variable anti-bricking algorithm merged in -rc8 broke booting
   on some Apple machines because they implement EFI spec 1.10, which
   doesn't provide a QueryVariableInfo() runtime function and the logic
   used to check for the existence of that function was insufficient.
   Fix from Josh Boyer.

 * The anti-bricking algorithm also introduced a compiler warning on
   32-bit. Fix from Borislav Petkov.
