Let's see if I understand right:
a) 32-bit efivar on 64-bit kernel on 32-bit UEFI receives 64-bit fields,
b) 32-bit efivar on 64-bit kernel on 64-bit UEFI receives 32-bit fields,
c) 64-bit efivar on 64-bit kernel on 64-bit UEFI receives 64-bit fields.
a) is claimed in the patch from Dec 17, b) and c) come in dumps I quoted.
