uninstallation.

Ashish,

Good point.  I was looking at the code size of a single uncompressed UEFI 
Driver (DiskIoDxe).  I suspect that the patch provides a more consistent 
pattern across all drivers that use these UefiLib APIs, and then provides 
better compression on an FV that contains many UEFI Drivers.

I also suspect there may be a small size increase for the single compressed 
UEFI Driver use case for PCI Option ROMs.

I will run a few more experiments this morning.

Thanks,

Mike
