Ok, this looks good to me and I'll apply it if it looks good to Matt as well.

This also means we cannot (yet) remove the old memmap code from the EFI code, but
that's the price of compatibility.

Btw., can UV1 users fix this via a BIOS update? In that case feel free to nudge
your users via something like:

> + /* UV2+ BIOS has a fix for this issue. UV1 still needs the quirk. */
> + if (dmi_check_system(sgi_uv1_dmi)) {

> + pr_info("x86/uv: Please upgrade your BIOS to version x.y.z+ to get rid of this message.\n");
> set_bit(EFI_OLD_MEMMAP, &efi.flags);

or so. (But only if it's expected of them to upgrade the BIOS to resolve other
bugs as well - I personally only upgrade BIOSen if absolutely necessary.)

Thanks,

Ingo
