Actually, I will take this patch as a fix right away - 32-bit ARM has
the same issue (although it does not actually incorporate this object
file)

In the meantime, please check how the stub gets pulled into your
kernel: the idea of a static library is that only the objects that are
used are included in the final build, but this turned out to be broken
for arm64 [0]. IOW, simply applying a similar change might fix your
build issue as well (assuming RISC-V does not actually call
efi_allocate_pages_aligned() anywhere)
