That is a very good point, and I missed that this is a 64-bit kernel
running on 32-bit UEFI.

The TPM code does use efi_call_proto() directly, and now I am thinking
it is perhaps the allocate_pages() call that simply only initializes
the low 32-bits of log_tbl.

Jeremy, could you please try initializing tcg2_protocol and log_tbl to
NULL at the start of the function?
