29.5 Natural Integers and Fixed Size Integers

UEFI Drivers should only use the integer data types defined in the Calling Conventions section of the UEFI Specification. Even when this recommendation is followed, there is an additional limitation of the EBC architecture. UEFI Drivers with arithmetic calculations and comparisons between following integer types must be avoided:

  • INTN and UINT8

  • INTN and UINT16

  • INTN and UINT32

  • UINTN and INT64
