7.2.1 Single Driver Binding Protocol

The following is an example of the entry point to the Abc driver that installs the Driver Binding Protocol gAbcDriverBinding, the Component Name 2 Protocol gAbcComponentName2, and the Component Name Protocol gAbcComponentName onto the Abc driver's image handle and does not install any of the other optional driver-related protocols or features. This driver returns the status from the UEFI driver library function EfiLibInstallDriverBindingComponentName2(). See Chapter 9 for details on the services and data fields produced by the Driver Binding Protocol and Chapter 11 for details on the Component Name 2 Protocol and the Component Name Protocol.

Notice that the Component Name Protocol and the Component Name 2 Protocol use the same function pointers for their services called AbcGetDriverName() and AbcGetControllerName(). This is a size reduction technique supported by the EDK II that reduces the overhead for a single UEFI Driver to support both Component Name Protocols.

Also note that the optional protocol structures are declared with GLOBAL_REMOVE_IF_UNREFERENCED. This style allows these structures and the associated services to be removed if the Component Name feature is disabled when this UEFI driver is compiled. The EDK II library UefiLib uses several Platform Configuration Database (PCD) feature flags to enable and disable the Component Name Protocols and Driver Diagnostics Protocols at build time. This allows a developer to implement all of these in the UEFI Driver sources and select the ones that are actually needed for a specific release at build time. Chapter 30 covers how to build UEFI Drivers in the EDK II and also covers configuration of UEFI Drivers through PCD settings.

Note: This example and many other examples throughout this guide make use of the EDK II library DebugLib that provides DEBUG() and ASSERT() related macros. These macros are very useful during development and debug. However, ASSERT() related macros must be disabled when UEFI Drivers are released. Chapter 31 covers the PCD setting to enable and disable the macros provided by DebugLib.

EFI_STATUS
EFIAPI
AbcDriverEntryPoint (
IN EFI_HANDLE ImageHandle,
IN EFI_SYSTEM_TABLE *SystemTable
)
{
EFI_STATUS Status;
//
// Install driver model protocol(s) onto ImageHandle
//
Status = EfiLibInstallDriverBindingComponentName2 (
ImageHandle, // ImageHandle
SystemTable, // SystemTable
&gAbcDriverBinding, // DriverBinding
ImageHandle, // DriverBindingHandle
&gAbcComponentName, // ComponentName

);
ASSERT_EFI_ERROR (Status);
return Status;
}

The following example shows another example of the entry point to the Abc driver that installs the Driver Binding Protocol gAbcDriverBinding onto the Abc driver's image handle and the optional driver-related protocols. This driver returns the status from the UEFI driver library function EfiLibInstallAllDriverProtocols2(). This library function is used if one or more of the optional driver related protocols are being installed.

See Chapters 9, 11, 12, and 13 for details on the services and data fields produced by the Driver Binding Protocol, Component Name Protocols, Driver Configuration Protocols, and Driver Diagnostics Protocols.
