This crate enables you some convenience features on top of the
uefi crate. It includes a panic handler, a logger, and
a global allocator.
uefi-services is part of the
uefi-rs project. Please refer to
https://github.com/rust-osdev/uefi-rs/ for comprehensive documentation.
This crate's features are described in
This crate simplifies the writing of higher-level code for UEFI.
It initializes the memory allocation and logging crates, allowing code to use Rust's data structures and to log errors.
Logging and allocation are only allowed while boot services are
active. Once runtime services are activated by calling
exit_boot_services, the logger will be disabled and the
allocator will always return null.
It also stores a global reference to the UEFI system table, in order to reduce the redundant passing of references to it.
Library code can simply use global UEFI functions
through the reference provided by
Optional crate features
logger(enabled by default): Initialize a global logger.
panic_handler(enabled by default): Register a panic handler. A panic handler must be provided for your program to compile, but you can choose to provide your own if you don't want to use this one.
qemu: On x86_64, make qemu exit with code 3 if a panic occurs. This feature assumes the program is running under QEMU.
