    Reserving EBDA with EFI is fine by what little I know.

    But the current code doesn't like it -- if the EFI memmap range is inside
    the EBDA range, then the reserve_early() routine panics with:

    "Overlapping early reservations"

    Something needs tweaking here somehow ... and I'm not the one to know what.
