Ard Biesheuvel - Nov. 14, 2018, 5:55 p.m.
The new memory EFI reservation feature we introduced to allow memory
reservations to persist across kexec may trigger an unbounded number
of calls to memblock_reserve(). The memblock subsystem can deal with
this fine, but not before memblock resizing is enabled, which we can
only do after paging_init(), when the memory we reallocate the array
into is actually mapped.

So break out the memreserve table processing into a separate routine
and call it after paging_init() on arm64. On ARM, because of limited
reviewing bandwidth of the maintainer, we cannot currently fix this,
so instead, disable the EFI persistent memreserve entirely on ARM so
we can fix it later.
