Pull Request Details:
  • Type: Bug Fix

  • Impact: Low (excessive PBA size)

  • Reference to related issue (URL):

  • How was this pull request tested? On Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS

  • Brief description of the changes in this pull request:

A TCG Opal pre-boot authentication (PBA) system is a minimal operating system constructed by ReaR to unlock self-encrpyting disks before the regular OS takes over. Before this PR, it could happen that a previously created PBA was included in a subsequently created PBA, causing it to be unnecessarily large.
