Ok, I applied the patches up to this point, to tip:core/efi, to get the ball
rolling - and will push them out after testing:
8d446c8647c9 arm64/mm: Add PROT_DEVICE_nGnRnE and PROT_NORMAL_WT
b40227fbfb1f acpi, x86: Implement arch_apei_get_mem_attributes()
7bf793115dd9 efi, x86: Rearrange efi_mem_attributes()
fa5c35011a8d Revert "x86/efi: Request desired alignment via the PE/COFF headers"
248fbcd5aee0 x86/efi-bgrt: Switch pr_err() to pr_debug() for invalid BGRT
87db73aebf55 efi: Add support for EFI_MEMORY_RO attribute introduced by UEFIv2.5
Let me know when the concerns are resolved or there are other patches to add.
