Subject: [PATCH] ieee1275: Avoiding many unecessary open/close

This patch aims to change the grub_ofdisk_open and grub_ofdisk_close behaviors. Since some devices (Fibre Channel and NVMe) can have a long time for shutdown notification, we should avoid open and close the disks as much as we can.

So, we are changing how those functions works. The grub_ofdisk_close will take care of just changing the disk element status, by doing a soft close, i.e, the firmware will not be called. On the other hand, the grub_ofdisk_open will take care of closing the current disk opened only if the disk requested in the current call is different from the current one. This close will be responsible to request the firmware to actually close the disk.

Yet, this patch modifies the grub_ofdisk_get_block_size function, avoiding open and close calls inside of it.

Thank you Michael Chang (mchang@suse.com) for all support.
