[edk2-devel] [PATCH v2 0/4] DynamicTablesPkg: Introduce SMBIOS dispatcher
Posted by Sami Mujawar 11 months, 3 weeks ago
Some SMBIOS tables have dependencies on other SMBIOS tables. These
dependencies are established using handles pointing to the dependent
SMBIOS tables.
This requires the dependent SMBIOS table to be installed before the
parent SMBIOS table can be installed.

To facilitate dynamic SMBIOS table generation, a SMBIOS table
dispatcher has been introduced. The SMBIOS table dispatcher
schedules the installation of dependent SMBIOS tables before
the parent SMBIOS table is installed.

This v2 series addresses the feedback received for the v1 series
and also introduces ordered dispatch for SMBIOS tables. 

The SMBIOS dispatcher categorises the SMBIOS tables as:
 - default ordered
 - ordered.

The default ordered SMBIOS tables have a fixed defined dependency
i.e. their dependency list can be traversed by the dispatcher to
schedule their dispatch.

Ordered SMBIOS tables do not have a well defined dependency and
could depend on any SMBIOS table, for e.g. the SMBIOS table Group
Associations (Type 14) does not have a well defined dependency as
it can be used to associate any two SMBIOS tables.
Therefore, ordered SMBIOS tables are scheduled for dispatch after
the default ordered SMBIOS tables are dispatched. The ordered SMBIOS
tables can also have a level that allows the dispatcher to sequence
their dispatch.
