Never tried the following, so I'm unsure if edk2 intends to support it
explicitly, but what about binary-only library instances (the 2-clause
BSDL allows that)?

If the library class header doesn't state EFIAPI on the functions, the
library vendor builds the library instance with Visual Studio, and the
library user builds the client module with gcc (against the same library
class header), calls will fail.

(The way I imagine using binary-only library instances is that the
library comes as a binary object with a matching INF file, in a separate
subdirectory, and the user resolves the library class in his/her
platform DSC to that INF file. Not sure about the exact [section names]
in the library instance's INF file though.)

Thanks!
