#include <asm/bootparam.h>
* This file is included from multiple environments. Do not
* add completing #includes to make it standalone.
* Deal with bootloaders which fail to initialize unknown fields in
* boot_params to zero. The list fields in this list are taken from
* analysis of kexec-tools; if other broken bootloaders initialize a
* different set of fields we will need to figure out how to disambiguate.
* Note: efi_info is commonly left uninitialized, but that field has a
* private magic, so it is better to leave it unchanged.
static void sanitize_boot_params(struct boot_params *boot_params)
* this field. The purpose of this field is to guarantee
* compliance with the x86 boot spec located in
* Documentation/x86/boot.txt . That spec says that the
* *whole* structure should be cleared, after which only the
* portion defined by struct setup_header (boot_params->hdr)
* should be copied in.
* If you're having an issue because the sentinel is set, you
* need to change the whole structure to be cleared, not this
* (or any other) individual field, or you will soon have
* problems again.
