Sounds good to me. We are currently discussing the best approach to
provide reserved memory
information to U-Boot/EDK2. The idea is to U-Boot/EDK2 may have to
update the DT with
reserved-memory node so that Linux is aware of the reservation as well.

Then, in the stub, you can

I am bit confused here. Why does EFI stub need to overlap the reserved memory.
I thought EFI stub just needs to parse the DT to find out the reserved
memory region to make sure
that it doesn't try to access/overwrite that region.
