Shouldn't this be 37? You get 36 bytes for your GUID, plus a trailing
NUL? Either way, this should be a #define. The closest thing we have in
include/linux/efi.h is EFI_VARIABLE_GUID_LEN. Perhaps we need a
EFI_GUID_LEN that includes the trailing NUL?

One thing I just noticed that's worth pointing out is that 'pr_fmt'
isn't defined in drivers/firmware/efi/efi.c. Before your patch series
you get,

[ 0.000000] efi: SMBIOS=0xbae41a98 ACPI=0xbac6f000 ACPI 2.0=0xbac6f000 MPS=0xfca90

and after,

[ 0.000000] SMBIOS=0xbae41a98 ACPI=0xbac6f000 ACPI 2.0=0xbac6f000 MPS=0xfca90

which isn't the end of the world, but it does mean that the error
messages are now much less informative, e.g.

> + config_tables = early_memremap(efi.systab->tables,
> + efi.systab->nr_tables * sz);
> + if (config_tables == NULL) {
> + pr_err("could not map configuration table!\n");
> + return -ENOMEM;
> + }

Which goes from,

efi: could not map configuration table!

to become,

could not map configuration table!
