Subject: [GIT PULL] EFI fixes for tip/x86/efi

Hi guys,

This pull includes fixes for the merge window material currently sitting
in tip/x86/efi. The three patches from me fix bugs in the pstore code
paths and the two from Dan are the results of his static analysis tool,
including a fix for a locking bug.

The changes are based on my efi-for-tip2 branch. If you would like it
based on something else, just let me know.

The following changes since commit a614e1923d5389d01f3545ee4a90e39a04d0c90d:

Merge tag 'v3.9' into efi-for-tip2 (2013-04-30 11:42:13 +0100)
