Subject[PATCH 4.9 v2] x86/pti/efi: broken conversion from efi to kernel page table
Date
The page table order must be increased for EFI table in order to avoid a
bug where NMI tries to change the page table to kernel page table, while
efi page table is active.

For more disccussion about this bug, see this thread:
