    OvmfPkg/AcpiPlatformDxe: short-circuit the transfer of an empty S3_CONTEXT
    In commit 805762252733 ("OvmfPkg/AcpiPlatformDxe: save fw_cfg boot script
    with QemuFwCfgS3Lib", 2017-02-23), we replaced the explicit S3 boot script
    manipulation in TransferS3ContextToBootScript() with a call to
    QemuFwCfgS3CallWhenBootScriptReady(). (Passing AppendFwCfgBootScript() as
    QemuFwCfgS3CallWhenBootScriptReady() checks for fw_cfg DMA up-front, and
    bails with RETURN_NOT_FOUND if fw_cfg DMA is missing.
    (This is justified as the goal of QemuFwCfgS3Lib is to "enable[] driver
    modules [...] to produce fw_cfg DMA operations that are to be replayed at
    S3 resume time".)
    In turn, if QemuFwCfgS3CallWhenBootScriptReady() fails, then
    OvmfPkg/AcpiPlatformDxe rolls back any earlier linker/loader script
    processing, and falls back to the built-in ACPI tables.
    (This is also justified because failure to save WRITE_POINTER commands for
    replaying at S3 resume implies failure to process the linker/loader script
    Calling QemuFwCfgS3CallWhenBootScriptReady() from
    TransferS3ContextToBootScript() *unconditionally* is wrong however. For
    the case when the linker/loader script contains no WRITE_POINTER commands,
    the call perpetuated an earlier side effect, and introduced another one:
    (1) On machine types that provide fw_cfg DMA (i.e., 2.5+),
        QemuFwCfgS3CallWhenBootScriptReady() would succeed, and allocate
        workspace for the boot script opcodes in reserved memory. However, no
        opcodes would actually be produced in the AppendFwCfgBootScript()
        callback, due to lack of any WRITE_POINTER commands.
        This waste of reserved memory had been introduced in earlier commit
        df73df138d9d ("OvmfPkg/AcpiPlatformDxe: replay
        QEMU_LOADER_WRITE_POINTER commands at S3", 2017-02-09).
    (2) On machine types that lack fw_cfg DMA (i.e., 2.4 and earlier),
        TransferS3ContextToBootScript() would now fail the linker/loader
        script for no reason.
        (Note that QEMU itself prevents adding devices that depend on
        WRITE_POINTER if the machine type lacks fw_cfg DMA:
        $ qemu-system-x86_64 -M pc-q35-2.4 -device vmgenid
        qemu-system-x86_64: -device vmgenid: vmgenid requires DMA write
        support in fw_cfg, which this machine type does not provide)
    Short-circuit an empty S3_CONTEXT in TransferS3ContextToBootScript() by
    dropping S3_CONTEXT on the floor. This is compatible with the current
    contract of the function as it constitutes a transfer of ownership.
    Regression (2) was found and reported by Dhiru Kholia as an OSX guest boot
    failure on the "pc-q35-2.4" machine type:
    Dhiru bisected the issue to commit 805762252733.
