x86/pti/efi: broken conversion from efi to kernel page table
The page table order must be increased for EFI table in order to avoid a bug where NMI tries to change the page table to kernel page table, while efi page table is active. For more disccussion about this bug, see this thread: http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1801.1/00951.html Signed-off-by: Pavel Tatashin <pasha.tatashin@oracle.com> Reviewed-by: Steven Sistare <steven.sistare@oracle.com> Acked-by: Jiri Kosina <jkosina@suse.cz> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>
