Might be worth adding a comment here to ensure nobody comes along later
and adds something like EFI_BOOT_LOADER_DATA or other stuff that's
allocated later here. I don't want to accidentally patch our way into
having the ability to stumble across a firmware blob somebody dumped
into the middle of a grub config file, especially since you only need to
collide crc32 (within the same length) to pre-alias a match.

Doesn't seem like this needs to be pr_err(); after all we have already
found a valid match, so the firmware vendor has done something
moderately stupid, but we have a firmware that will probably work. Of
course it still needs to return != 0, but pr_warn() or even pr_info()
seems more reasonable.

Aside from those nits, looks good to me.
