Good catch. The kexec code need to be fixed to use a separate buffer so
avoid the alignment like what kexec-tools did. I can submit a fix for
that.

But this issue could be a potential issue even if kexec get fixed so it
looks worth a fix in efi code as well. How about mapping only nr_maps
*desc_size in __efi_memmap_init? It looks easier to understand.
