-ENOCONTEXT, but let me try in any case:

linux/efi.h has

typedef struct {
efi_guid_t guid;
u32 table;
} efi_config_table_32_t;

so if we end up with more than 32 bits set in table, there is
something seriously wrong.

The size of efi_config_table_32_t deviates from efi_config_table_64_t,
so you will have to ensure that you are using the correct stride when
iterating over config_tables.
