[PATCH 00/15] Add missing SPARC support

From: Eric Snowberg
Subject: [PATCH 00/15] Add missing SPARC support
Date: Wed, 29 Jun 2016 14:43:13 -0700

First set of patches to add sun4v SPARC support to grub.

Major additions include:

* Properly scan for both SAS and SCSI disks
* Increasing boot performance
* GPT support
* NVMe support
* Various bug fixes

Before this patch, there isn’t a single SAS HBA that was enumerated correctly 
on SPARC. I went back 10 years and believe I have added every HBA with OF 

Without these patches, on larger systems, it took 15+ minutes to get
to the grub menu.  Now it takes about a second.

This code has been tested on T1, T2, T4, T5, and T7 hardware.

Eric Snowberg (15):
  sparc64: fix OF path names for sun4v systems
  sparc64: Add blocklist GPT support for SPARC
  grub-install: fix memory leak
  sparc64: Use the correct disk name in core.img
  ieee1275: fix segfault in grub-ofpathname
  ieee1275: add nvme support within ofpath
  ofdisk: memory corruption fix
  ofdisk: move open logic
  ieee1275: ofdisk - don't continue to query block-size after we have
  ofdisk: refactor open logic
  sparc64: boot performance improvements
  ofdisk: only add aliases that exist
  sparc64: add disks that don't have a devalias to the device list
  parser: Remove escape from the state transitions
  sparc64: ignore hypervisor reboot memory block device
