[PATCH] efi: permit calling efi_mem_reserve_persistent from atomic context




Currently, efi_mem_reserve_persistent() may not be called from atomic
context, since both the kmalloc() call and the memremap() call may
sleep.

The kmalloc() call is easy enough to fix, but the memremap() call
needs to be moved into an init hook since we cannot control the
memory allocation behavior of memremap() at the call site.
