Subject[PATCH] tpm: of: avoid __va() translation for event log address
The TPM event log is provided to the OS by the firmware, by loading
it into an area in memory and passing the physical address via a node
in the device tree.

Currently, we use __va() to access the memory via the kernel's linear
map: however, it is not guaranteed that the linear map covers this
particular address, as we may be running under HIGHMEM on a 32-bit
architecture, or running firmware that uses a memory type for the
event log that is omitted from the linear map (such as EfiReserved).

So instead, use memremap(), which will reuse the linear mapping if
it is valid, or create another mapping otherwise.
