It *is* a memory attribute problem.  The current code always calls
ioremap() on efi.smbios.  The first problem is that this is a
physical address on x86, but a virtual address on ia64.

The second problem is that we don't check the supported attributes
for the SMBIOS table.  On HP sx1000/sx2000, these tables are in system
memory, which doesn't support uncacheable access, so ioremap() does
the wrong thing.

The patch below addresses both problems (but I can't test the x86 EFI
change).  I don't really like it, because the memory attribute checking
is not complete (it only checks the first page, not the whole range),
and there's already very similar code in acpi_os_map_memory(),
acpi_os_read_memory(), acpi_os_write_memory(), and efi_range_is_wc().

But it's a start, and maybe the consolidation could be done later.
