OK, that's 56 bytes and yet I realise that at no point in the
efi_mem_reserve() call path do we round up to the nearest page size
even though the EFI memory map only deals with EFI_PAGE_SIZE regions.

Could you try this patch?

Subject: [PATCH] x86/efi: Round EFI memmap reservations to EFI_PAGE_SIZE

Mike reported that his machine started rebooting during boot after,

  commit 8e80632fb23f ("efi/esrt: Use efi_mem_reserve() and avoid a kmalloc()")

The ESRT table on his machine is 56 bytes and at no point in the
efi_arch_mem_reserve() call path is that size rounded up to

Since the EFI memory map only deals with whole pages, inserting an EFI
memory region with 56 bytes results in a new entry covering zero
pages, and completely screws up the calculations for the old regions
that were trimmed.

Round all sizes upwards to the nearest EFI_PAGE_SIZE boundary.

Additionally, efi_memmap_insert() expects the mem::range::end value to
be one less than the end address for the region.
