Subject: [PATCH] efi/x86: Ignore the memory attributes table on i386
commit dd09fad9d2caad2325a39b766ce9e79cfc690184 upstream.
3a6b6c6fb23667fa ("efi: Make EFI_MEMORY_ATTRIBUTES_TABLE initialization common across all architectures")
moved the call to efi_memattr_init() from ARM specific to the generic
EFI init code, in order to be able to apply the restricted permissions
described in that table on x86 as well.
We never enabled this feature fully on i386, and so mapping and
reserving this table is pointless. However, due to the early call to
memblock_reserve(), the memory bookkeeping gets confused to the point
where it produces the splat below when we try to map the memory later

Let's work around this by disregarding the memory attributes table
altogether on i386, which does not result in a loss of functionality
or protection, given that we never consumed the contents.
