Subject[PATCH v2 5/5] x86/efi: Allocate a trampoline if needed in efi_free_boot_services()
Date
On my Dell XPS 13 9350 with firmware 1.4.4 and SGX on, if I boot
Fedora 24's grub2-efi off a hard disk, my first 1MB of RAM looks
like:

efi: mem00: [Runtime Data |RUN| | | | | | | |WB|WT|WC|UC] range=[0x0000000000000000-0x0000000000000fff] (0MB)
efi: mem01: [Boot Data | | | | | | | | |WB|WT|WC|UC] range=[0x0000000000001000-0x0000000000027fff] (0MB)
efi: mem02: [Loader Data | | | | | | | | |WB|WT|WC|UC] range=[0x0000000000028000-0x0000000000029fff] (0MB)
efi: mem03: [Reserved | | | | | | | | |WB|WT|WC|UC] range=[0x000000000002a000-0x000000000002bfff] (0MB)
efi: mem04: [Runtime Data |RUN| | | | | | | |WB|WT|WC|UC] range=[0x000000000002c000-0x000000000002cfff] (0MB)
efi: mem05: [Loader Data | | | | | | | | |WB|WT|WC|UC] range=[0x000000000002d000-0x000000000002dfff] (0MB)
efi: mem06: [Conventional Memory| | | | | | | | |WB|WT|WC|UC] range=[0x000000000002e000-0x0000000000057fff] (0MB)
efi: mem07: [Reserved | | | | | | | | |WB|WT|WC|UC] range=[0x0000000000058000-0x0000000000058fff] (0MB)
efi: mem08: [Conventional Memory| | | | | | | | |WB|WT|WC|UC] range=[0x0000000000059000-0x000000000009ffff] (0MB)

My EBDA is at 0x2c000, which blocks off everything from 0x2c000 and
up, and my trampoline is 0x6000 bytes (6 pages), so it doesn't fit
in the loader data range at 0x28000.

Without this patch, it panics due to a failure to allocate the
trampoline. With this patch, it works:

[ +0.001744] Base memory trampoline at [ffff880000001000] 1000 size 24576
