Give Feedback Using LibRSU HAL API without Valid SPT or CPB

You can use the LibRSU HAL APIs when the SPTs or CPBs in flash are corrupted, but with reduced functionality. Intel provides specialized APIs to restore a saved SPT or CPB, and also to create an empty CPB. After the CPBs and SPTs are repaired using these APIs, the full RSU functionality is available.

Data Corruption Impact
Single SPT or Single CPB The librsu_init function restores it from the good copy.
Both SPTs The librsu_init is still successful (return code 0) but some of the functions returns the error code ECORRUPTED_SPT when called. Both SPTs being corrupted cause librsu_init to not be able to identify the location of the CPBs, and the CPBs is also considered as corrupted.
Both CPBs The librsu_init is still successful (return code 0) but some of the functions returns the error code ECORRUPTED_CPB when called.
Note: When the processor implements the Functions, the processor needs to call the function librsu_init at the beginning of the whole application, and ends with librsu_exit This is not necessary for RSU Client API.

The table below lists which APIs require valid SPT or CPB.
