This series exposes an interface to userspace for reading and writing
secure variables contained within the PowerVM LPAR Platform KeyStore
(PLPKS) for the purpose of configuring dynamic secure boot, and adds
the glue required to load keys from the PLPKS into the platform keyring.

This series builds on past work by Nayna Jain[0] in exposing PLPKS
variables to userspace.  Rather than being a generic interface for
interacting with the keystore, however, we use the existing powerpc
secvar infrastructure to only expose objects in the keystore used
for dynamic secure boot.  This has the benefit of leveraging an
existing interface and making the implementation relatively minimal.

This series integrates a previous series to fix some bugs in PLPKS
and implement support for signed updates[1], and a cleanup patch from
Michael Ellerman[2].

There are a few relevant details to note about the implementation:

 * New additions to the secvar API: format(), max_size(), config_attrs,

 * New optional sysfs directory "config/" for arbitrary ASCII variables

 * Some OPAL-specific code has been relocated from secvar-sysfs.c to
   powernv platform code.  Would appreciate any powernv testing!

 * Variable names are fixed and only those used for secure boot are
   exposed.  This is not a generic PLPKS interface, but also doesn't
   preclude one being added in future.

With this series, both powernv and pseries platforms support dynamic
secure boot through the same interface.

v1: https://lore.kernel.org/linuxppc-dev/20221228072943.429266-1-ruscur@russell.cc/
v2: https://lore.kernel.org/linuxppc-dev/20221230042014.154483-1-ruscur@russell.cc/


Changes in v3:

    Integrate Andrew's PLPKS bugfixes and enhancements series and Michael
    Ellerman's u64 cleanup patch into this series (and update the other
    patches to use u64)

    New patches to load keys from the PLPKS into the kernel's platform
    keyring (ruscur)

    New patches to pass PLPKS password to new kernels when kexecing

    Improve handling of format strings (ruscur)

    Clean up secvar error messages (ajd)

    Merge config attributes into secvar_operations (mpe)

    Add a new static variable names API rather than (ab)using get_next()

    Warning message when PAGE_SIZE is smaller than the max object size

    Move plpks.h to the include directory, and move a bunch of constants
    in there with a consistent naming scheme

    Refresh PLPKS config values whenever plpks_get_usedspace() is called

    Extra validation on PLPKS config values (ruscur)

    Return maxobjlabelsize to userspace as is without subtracting overhead (ruscur)

    Fix error code handling in plpks_confirm_object_flushed() (ruscur)

    Pass plpks_var struct to plpks_signed_update_var() by reference (mpe)

    Make the data buffer in plpks_read_var() caller-allocated to reduce
    number of allocations/copies (mpe)

    Rework the Kconfig options so that PSERIES_PLPKS is a hidden option,
    turned on by enabling PPC_SECURE_BOOT, and the PLPKS secvar code is
    activated by PPC_SECVAR_SYSFS to match powernv (ajd)

    Use machine_arch_initcall() rather than device_initcall() so we don't
    break powernv (mpe)

    Improve ABI documentation (mpe)

    Return -EIO on most read errors (mpe)

    Add "grubdbx" variable (Sudhakar)

    Use utf8s_to_utf16s() rather than our own "UCS-2" conversion code (mpe)

    Fix SB_VERSION data length (ruscur)

    Stop prepending policy data on read (ruscur)

    Don't print errors to the kernel log when reading non-existent
    variables (Sudhakar)

    Miscellaneous code style, checkpatch cleanups

Changes in v2:

    Remove unnecessary config vars from sysfs and document the others,
    thanks to review from Greg.  If we end up needing to expose more, we
    can add them later and update the docs.

    Use sysfs_emit() instead of sprintf() for all sysfs strings

    Change the size of the sysfs binary attributes to include the 8-byte
    flags header, preventing truncation of large writes.
