Bisect says this change (commit af1648984828) is triggering a
regression, likely not urgent, in my testing of the new efi_fake_mem=
facility to allow memory to be marked "soft reserved" via the kernel
command line (commit 199c84717612 x86/efi: Add efi_fake_mem support
for EFI_MEMORY_SP). The following command line triggers the crash
signature below:

efi_fake_mem=4G@9G:0x40000,4G@13G:0x40000

However, this command line works ok:

efi_fake_mem=8G@9G:0x40000

So, something about multiple efi_fake_mem statements interacts badly
with this change. Nothing obvious occurs to me at the moment, I'll
keep debugging, but wanted to highlight this in the meantime in case
someone else sees a deeper issue or the root cause.
