[SLOF] [PATCH 0/2] envvar: Make sure that /options is always populated correctly

While working on the "-prom-env" parameter support for the pseries
machine in QEMU, I had to discover that SLOF does not populate
the /options device tree node correctly anymore in case some
environment variables are missing in the common NVRAM partition.
While looking closer at the issue, I also noticed that "set-defaults"
is currently broken with regards to /options - it does not update
the entries there anymore.
The first patch now fixes these issues. The second patch is a small
optimization - once we correctly set the default values in /options
right from the start, we do not have to read them from the freshly
initialized NVRAM partition anymore.

Thomas Huth (2):
  envvar: Set properties in /options during "(set-defaults)"
  envvar: Do not read default values for /options from the NVRAM anymore
