Workaround buggy UEFI accessing boot services memory after ExitBootServices().
Patches discussed here:
https://lists.xenproject.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2019-08/msg00701.html

Test results on few laptops:

Thinkpad x230, firmware version 2.77:
 - without the patch: crashes on RS call (mapbs helps)
 - with patch: works
 - same with xen.efi and MB2

Librem 14 v1, firmware version (AMI) ARUD026 (06/18/2015):
 - without the patch: works
 - with the patch: works
 - same with xen.efi and MB2

Dell Latitude E6420, firmware version A21:
 this machine requires efi=attr=uc workaround
 - without the patch: dom0 hangs before sending any message to the console (even with earlyprintk=xen etc)
 - with the patch: crashes before dom0 prints anything: mm.c:896:d0v0 non-privileged attempt to map MMIO space 2c2c2c2c2c
 - same with xen.efi and MB2

Thinkpad W540:
 - without the patch: crashes on RS call (only efi=no-rs helps)
 - with patch: works
 - tested only with MB2

Thinkpad X1 Carbon gen5, firmware version 1.22 (2017-07-04):
 - without the patch: works
 - with patch: works
 - tested only xen.efi

Thinkpad P52, firmware version 1.25 (2018-04-15):
 - without the patch (MB2): hangs on RS call (mapbs helps)
 - without the patch (xen.efi): works(?!)
 - with the patch: works
 - tested with xen.efi and MB2

Changes in v2:
 - fix boot with xen.efi (efi_memmap at this point still needs to be accessed
   via physical address). TBH, I don't understand why previous version worked
   with MB2 - is directmap mapped at this point?
