Thank you for your review. Please see reply to your comments below.

The v4 patchset was based on the tip of the edk2 master branch on the
day it was posted. The commit id on which this series was based is
"f7f94ffe".

> 2. Pcd is for Standalone MM Code, not specific for Variable. So, I suggest to use the generic name PcdStandaloneMmCodeEnabled. Its description is also required to be updated.

The intention of the changes done in the patchset is to reuse the
variable service driver in MM_STANDALONE mode. There could be
platforms that enable Standalone MM mode but would not want a  secure
storage for EFI variables. In which case, the PCD named
PcdStandaloneMmCodeEnabled would not be sufficient. And this the
reason it was named " PcdStandaloneMmVariableEnabled".

> 3. Library header file name (StandaloneMmServicesTableLib.h) is also library class name. Library class name and header file mapping is required to be listed in MdePkg.dec file [LibraryClasses] section. And, this header file doesn't need to include Library/DebugLib.h, because it doesn't depend on it.
> 4. Library implementation INF file (StandaloneMmRuntimeDxe.inf) should list its library class name in LIBRARY_CLASS of [Defines] section. Its library class name is StandaloneMmServicesTableLib. And, MdePkg library implementation depends on MdePkg.dec only in [Packages] section.
> 5. Library implementation should implement all interfaces defined in library class header file. StandaloneMmRuntimeDxe library should initialize gMmst as NULL if it has no real value. StandaloneMmRuntimeDxe library doesn't depend on any other library class. It doesn't need to list other library class in its [LibraryClasses] section of INF file.

Point 3, 4 and 5 will be fixed

> 6. When other module depends on this library class header file, it should list StandaloneMmServicesTableLib in its [LibraryClasses] section of INF file.
> 7. Platform DSC also needs to list LibraryClassName|Library implementation INF in [LibraryClasses] section.

Points 6 and 7 are taken care and are part of edk2platform specific
changes, will post those changes soon

> 8. I don't suggest to add AsmLfence API in BaseLib for AArch64, because it is X86 specific API. I suggest to update Variable driver with the wrapper function FenceFunc() for AsmLfence() and MemoryFence(). FenceFunc can be implemented for the different arch in Variable driver. Variable driver will call FenceFunc() instead of AsmLfence(). So, only variable driver is required to be updated. There is no change in BaseLib.

Okay, the variable driver can be updated to call a wrapper
"FenceFunc()" but wouldn't it be useful to add the architecture
specific implantation of this in BaseLib. In that way, not just the
variable driver but other drivers can use this implementation of
"FenceFunc()". For instance,
FaultTolerantWriteDxe/FaultTolerantWriteSmm.c does calls to
AsmLfence() and an architecture specific implementation of
"FenceFunc()" in BaseLib can be reused in FaultTolerantWriteDxe driver
as well.
