Subject[PATCH 5/5] x86/boot: Use unsigned comparison for addresses
Date
The load address is compared with LOAD_PHYSICAL_ADDR using a signed
comparison currently (using jge instruction).

When loading a 64-bit kernel using the new efi32_pe_entry point added by
commit 97aa276579b2 ("efi/x86: Add true mixed mode entry point into
.compat section") using qemu with -m 3072, the firmware actually loads
us above 2Gb, resulting in a very early crash.

Use jae instruction to perform unsigned comparison instead, as physical
addresses should be considered as unsigned.
