[GIT PULL] EFI urgent fix for v4.6 queue

From: Matt Fleming

Folks, the following patch fixes a bug that is triggered with the new
EFI page table code sitting in tip/efi/core and queued up for the
merge window.

It turns out that we were relying on the kernel's mappings for those
regions that are marked E820_RESERVED, etc in the e820 map. The
specific example in the bug report was page zero which was always
"special" on legacy BIOS.

On EFI, legitimate code/data can be placed there and so if it's part
of the EFI memory map, we must make sure we map it into the EFI page
tables. EFI runtime drivers may need to access it.

The following changes since commit 2ad510dc372c2caac9aada9ff6dd10e787616e1d:

x86/efi: Only map kernel text for EFI mixed mode (2016-02-22 08:26:28 +0100)

* Fix a bug triggered with the new separate EFI page table code where
EFI boot services regions that are marked E820_RESERVED are not
mapped into the page tables, leading to an oops during
SetVirtualAddressMap() - Matt Fleming
