[edk2] [Patch v4 4/5] UefiCpuPkg/CpuS3DataDxe: Remove below 4G limitation.
Posted by Eric Dong 5 years, 8 months ago
Because PrepareApStartupVector() stores StackAddress to
"mExchangeInfo->StackStart" (which has type (VOID*)), and because
"UefiCpuPkg/PiSmmCpuDxeSmm/X64/MpFuncs.nasm" reads the latter with:

         add  edi, StackStartAddressLocation
         add  rax, qword [edi]
         mov  rsp, rax
         mov  qword [edi], rax

in long-mode code. So code can remove below 4G limitation.
