7.3 Adding the Driver Supported EFI Version Protocol Feature

This feature provides information on the version of the UEFI Specification to which the UEFI Driver conforms. The version information follows the same format as the version field in the EFI System Table. This feature is required for UEFI Drivers on PCI and other plug in cards.

There are no EDK II library functions to help install the Driver Supported EFI Version Protocol. Instead, the UEFI Driver requiring this feature must install the Driver Supported EFI Version Protocol using the UEFI Boot Service InstallMultipleProtocolInterfaces(). A UEFI Driver must install, at most, one instance of this protocol and, if it is produced, it must be installed onto the ImageHandle. This protocol is composed of only data fields, so no functions need be implemented to complete its implementation. Example 94, below, expands Example 93, above, and adds a Driver Supported EFI Version Protocol instance to ImageHandle. The Driver Supported EFI Version Protocol instance in this example specifies that this UEFI Driver follows the UEFI 2.3.1 Specification.
