[PATCH 2/8] efi/x86: Use non-blocking SetVariable() for efi_delete_dummy_variable()




From: Sai Praneeth <sai.praneeth.prakhya@xxxxxxxxx>

Presently, efi_delete_dummy_variable() uses set_variable() which might
block and hence kernel prints stack trace with a warning "bad:
scheduling from the idle thread!". So, make efi_delete_dummy_variable()
use set_variable_nonblocking(), which, as the name suggests doesn't
block.
