efi_mem_reserve_persistent+0x50/0xf8:
kmalloc at include/linux/slab.h:546
(inlined by) efi_mem_reserve_persistent at drivers/firmware/efi/efi.c:979

This line,

rsv = kmalloc(sizeof(*rsv), GFP_ATOMIC);

Kmemleak has a known limitation that can only track pointers in the kernel
virtual space. Hence, it will report false positives due to "rsv" will only
reference to other physical addresses,

rsv->next = efi_memreserve_root->next;
efi_memreserve_root->next = __pa(rsv);
