Some time ago, we brought our UV BIOS callback code up to speed with the
new EFI memory mapping scheme, in commit:

    d1be84a232e3 ("x86/uv: Update uv_bios_call() to use 

By leveraging some changes that I made to a few of the EFI runtime
callback mechanisms, in commit:

    80e75596079f ("efi: Convert efi_call_virt() to efi_call_virt_pointer()")

This got everything running smoothly on UV, with the new EFI mapping
code.  However, this left one, small loose end, in that EFI_OLD_MEMMAP
(a.k.a. efi=old_map) will no longer work on UV, on kernels that include
the aforementioned changes.

At the time this was not a major issue (in fact, it still really isn't),
but there's no reason that EFI_OLD_MEMMAP *shouldn't* work on our
systems.  This commit adds a check into uv_bios_call, to see if we have
the EFI_OLD_MEMMAP bit set in efi.flags.  If it is set, we fall back to
using our old callback method, which uses efi_call directly on the __va
of our function pointer.
