x86/earlyprintk/efi: Fix infinite loop on some screen widths
An affected screen resolution is 1366 x 768, which width is not divisible by 8, the default font width. On such screens, when longer lines are earlyprintk'ed, overflow-to-next-line can never trigger, due to the left-most x-coordinate of the next character always less than the screen width. Earlyprintk will infinite loop in trying to print the rest of the string but unable to, due to the line being full. This patch makes the trigger consider the right-most x-coordinate, instead of left-most, as the value to compare against the screen width threshold.
