Somewhat late to this I know, but:

So it's attempting a direct access to 00000000ffe1fbc8, which, if I had
to guess, is probably where the flash is located. That makes sense from
the perspective of it being used in efivars. The obvious sadness here is
that it's doing this with a physical address rather than a virtual one.

It's possible that the machine is too broken to live - does Windows
succeed in performing a UEFI install? If it does then I think we need to
just accept that life is ugly and map the UEFI runtime areas with a 1:1
mapping as well as into virtual address space. That would also fix the
problem we see right now where the reboot call often uses a physical
address rather than a virtual one.
