Where does it? It's passed with some added offset to
__calc_tpm2_event_size, which does the remapping part. That's why
physical address is used here.

Passing final_tbl will lead to failure, as it will be remapped for
second time. Cast is needed here. Changing the type from void* to
unsigned long or phys_addr_t (and casting later) would also do the
job. I'm fine with both options.
