This function looks pretty generic.  There *are* some small
differences between the i386 and ia64 versions, but I think
this would be a good opportunity to factor those out and move
the common code into drivers/firmware/efi.

There have already been bugs (i.e., broken dependencies on
memory descriptor size) that would have been avoided if i386
and ia64 used common code.
