Liming --

Could you change the protocol name, and then use a typedef with the old name 
for compatibility?

Boaz:
  This protocol is edk2 implement protocol. We have no plan to propose it to 
UEFI spec. Its EFI_ prefix is history reason. To avoid the incompatible change, 
we don't change its definition. But for any new introduced protocol, we will 
insist on this rule without EFI_ prefix. 

Thanks
