Hi Ard,

So, at first glance this looks correct until I noticed that 
its_cpu_init_lpis() is being called before the early_initcalls are run.

This results in the WARN_ON triggering with the following backtrace:

[    0.000000]  its_cpu_init_lpis+0x1d4/0x2e0
[    0.000000]  its_cpu_init+0x78/0x1b4

[    0.000000]  init_IRQ+0xfc/0x130
[    0.000000]  start_kernel+0x344/0x4cc

due to the efi_memreserve_root not yet being set.
