I agree that there is a path in the code where Status is read without
having been set.

It seems that using EFI_SUCCESS as default value makes sense (assuming
the LogHashEvent() call is the important one). I'll let SecurityPkg
maintainers decide about this.

I think it would be nicer to set Status to EFI_SUCCESS either on the
(currently missing) "else" branch, or else just before the
EDKII_TCG_PRE_HASH check. In particular, setting Status so early that we
may still exit with EFI_DEVICE_ERROR is wasteful. So at least I'd move
the assignment past the "return EFI_DEVICE_ERROR" statement.

But... it's late. I agree that this patch qualifies for the stable tag.
So I'm not asking for a repost. I just wish more thought had been given
to the placement of the assignment.

Laszlo

Agree with Laszlo.

I prefer to move "Status = EFI_SUCCESS;" before the EDKII_TCG_PRE_HASH check.

With that moving, reviewed-by: Jiewen Yao <jiewen.yao@intel.com>

Thank you
Yao Jiewen
