[PATCH v2 0/3] firmware: Add boot information to sysfs

v2 reworks the series to put the sysfs properties in the core, and
optionally show them with the is_visible() callback.

This is the second iteration of this idea. The first used socinfo
custom attribute groups, but Arnd suggested we make this something
standardised under /sys/firmware instead:


Some ARM systems have a firmware that provides a hardware root of
trust. It's useful for the system to know how this root of trust has
been configured, so provide a standardised interface that expose this
information to userspace.

This is implemented as a sysfs attribute group registration in the
driver core, with platforms populating values obtained from firmware at
kernel boot time.

Patch 2 provides a user of the properties on an ARM system.

Patch 3 is new in v2 and is an example of populating bootinfo with the
EFI secure boot status.
