This patch causes x86_64 boots with efi32 bios to crash early and hard
(before any console output is seen).

Sample qemu command line:

qemu-system-x86_64 -kernel arch/x86/boot/bzImage -M q35 -cpu SandyBridge \
	-no-reboot -snapshot -smp 4 \
	-bios OVMF-pure-efi-32.fd \
	-m 1G \
	-usb -device usb-storage,drive=d0 \
	-drive file=rootfs.squashfs,if=none,id=d0,format=raw \
	--append 'earlycon=uart8250,io,0x3f8,9600n8 root=/dev/sda rootwait panic=-1 console=ttyS0' \
	-nographic

This is with qemu 3.1, though details other than "-bios OVMF-pure-efi-32.fd"
don't really matter.

Files used above are available from https://github.com/groeck/linux-build-test/.

The patch can not be reverted alone, but

Revert "x86/boot/KASLR: Limit KASLR to extract the kernel in immovable memory only"
Revert "x86/boot: Parse SRAT table and count immovable memory regions"
Revert "x86/boot: Early parse RSDP and save it in boot_params"

fixes the problem.

Bisect log attached below.
