the problem is : overlapping between kernel code with boot services code.

now e820 table that is passed from bootloader do not include boot services code range. and also current boot/head_64.S will not
try to find usable range for decompressed kernel ( too early )...

So solution will be:
1. revert Matthew Garrett's patch, because it breaking unknown good platform.
2. ask vendor of system that Matthew try to fix to go back fix their firmware. otherwise user have stay with CSM with it.

Thanks
