[edk2] [RFC V2 0/5] Support Bit fields in EFI/Buffer VarStore

Posted by Dandan Bi 132 weeks ago
V2: Not only support bit filed for EFI variable storage but also for buffer storage.
    And add sample questions to refer bit filed in buffer storage.
    Did some code/logic refining work.

Proposal:
In VFR file, the storage of some Question may use Bit field in an EFI VarStore. So we propose
to update VfrCompiler/SetupBrowser/HiiDatabase to support this usage model as edk2 implementation
enhancement. It will allow EFI varstore has Bit fields, and CheckBox/OneOf/Numeric VarId can refer
to Bit field. VFR syntax has no changes. VfrCompiler will create Question which refers to Bit field
with a specific GUID opcode. If SetupBrowser doesn't recognize the GUID opcode, it will skip those
Questions and show other Questions normally.

Detail changes:
Take the codes in edk2\MdeModulePkg\Universal\DriverSampleDxe as an example.
1.VfrCompiler:
(a) Enhance the VfrCompiler to parse the Data structure with Bit fields and
    record the Offset/With(in bit level ) of the members(Bit Offset/ With).
    Add data structure with bit fields in NvDataStructure.h file as below:
    typedef struct {
      UINT16   Field16;
      UINT8    Field8;
      UINT16   MyBits7 : 3; ///< Bits 2:0
      UINT16   MyBits8 : 3; ///< Bits 5:3 
      UINT16   MyBits9 : 1; ///< Bits 6
    } MY_BITS_VARSTORE_DATA;

(b) Keep the declaration of EFI VarStore with bit fields same with the normal EFI VarStore, no syntax change in .vfr file.
    In vfr.vfr file, declare the efivarstore with bit fields same with the normal EFI VarStore 

    efivarstore MY_BITS_VARSTORE_DATA,            // This is the data structure type
    attribute = EFI_VARIABLE_BOOTSERVICE_ACCESS | EFI_VARIABLE_NON_VOLATILE,  // EFI variable attribures
    name  = MyBitVar,                                                      // Define referenced name in vfr
    guid  = DRIVER_SAMPLE_FORMSET_GUID;     // GUID of this buffer storage

    So VfrCompiler need to detect whether the data structure of this EFI VarStore(MY_BITS_VARSTORE_DATA) contains bit field,
    if yes, it's bit EFI VarStore, or it's normal EFI VarStore.


(c) For the Question which refer to Bit field of an EFI VarStore, VfrCompiler will generate a GUID opcode to cover this Question.
    numeric varid   = MyBitVar.MyBits7,
      prompt  = STRING_TOKEN(STR_BIT_NUMERIC_PROMPT),
      help    = STRING_TOKEN(STR_NUMERIC_HELP0),
      minimum = 0,
      maximum = 7,
      step    = 0,
      default = 5, defaultstore = MyStandardDefault,     // This is standard default value
      default = 6, defaultstore = MyManufactureDefault,  // This is manufacture default value
    endnumeric;

    VfrCompiler generate a GUID opcode with a specified GUID value to cover the numeric opcode
      numeric varid   = MyBitVar.MyBits7,
      >0000024B: 5F 92 8B D6 DD 82 63 91 87 41 9B 27 20 A8 FD 60 A7 1D  (Guid opcode)
      >0000025D: 07 A6 2D 00 37 00 06 00 02 00 48 00 00 13 00 00 00 00 07 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 (numeric opcode)
      prompt  = STRING_TOKEN(0x002D),                                                                      
      help    = STRING_TOKEN(0x0037),
      minimum = 0,
      maximum = 7,
      step    = 0,
      default = 5, defaultstore = MyStandardDefault,
      >00000283: 5B 09 00 00 02 05 00 00 00 
      default = 6, defaultstore = MyManufactureDefault,
      >0000028C: 5B 09 01 00 02 06 00 00 00
      endnumeric;
      >00000295: 29 02 (end of numeric opcode)
      >00000297: 29 02 (end of Guid opcode)

(d) Save Offset/ With info for Question CheckBox/OneOf/Numeric which refer to Bit EFI VarStore.
    Record the Bit Offset/ With info, the max Bit Width is 32
    CheckBox: Bit width should always be 1 bit(VfrCompiler should report error for other value).
    Numeric/Oneof: Bit width can be saved  in EFI_IFR_NUMERIC.Flags/EFI_IFR_ONE_OF.Flags.
    Bit Offset can be saved in EFI_IFR_QUESTION_HEADER. VarStoreInfo. VarOffset
    Data type will be EFI_IFR_TYPE_NUM_SIZE_32 for BIT Numeric/Oneof.

2.SetupBrowserDxe: Need to get/set question value for Bit Questions correctly
  Parse the Ifr data, if the GUID opcode with specified GUID value, means the following Question's VarId refer to Bit field of an EFI VarStore.
  Record the bit Offset/ With and the converted byte Offset/ With to generate the ConfigRequest string.
  When get/set Question value or get question default value, need to set/get the value to/from specified bit offset and width.

3.HiiDatabaseDxe: Need to generate the ConfigAltResp for Bit Questions correctly 
  Parse the Ifr data, if the GUID opcode with specified GUID value, means the following Question's VarId refer to Bit field of an EFI VarStore.
  Record the bit offset/ with and the converted byte Offset/ With.
  When generating ConfigAltResp, need to merge the value of the same byte Offset/ With base on the bit Offset/ With.

These are the POC codes (verify platform: Nt32). Thanks for your comments.
