SubjectRe: Regression from efi: call get_event_log before ExitBootServices

Thanks for testing and sending this report! This patch relies heavily on
the functions exposed by the firmware. My first guess would be that some of
these may not be implemented correctly by the manufacturer.

Could you share more information on this specific device?
Do you have any link to the manufacturer website (I found [1] but it is
based on an ARM CPU)?
Do you have the option to update your firmware? Is a copy of the firmware
available from the manufacturer?

On your side, I assume no error message got displayed on the screen when
booting. Would you be able to try to boot in an UEFI shell [2] and execute
the command "dh -v"?
