x86/efi: Load fixmap GDT in efi_call_phys_epilog()
When PTI is enabled on x86-32 the kernel uses the GDT mapped in the fixmap for the simple reason that this address is also mapped for user-space. The efi_call_phys_prolog()/efi_call_phys_epilog() wrappers change the GDT to call EFI runtime services and switch back to the kernel GDT when they return. But the switch-back uses the writable GDT, not the fixmap GDT. When that happened and and the CPU returns to user-space it switches to the user %cr3 and tries to restore user segment registers. This fails because the writable GDT is not mapped in the user page-table, and without a GDT the fault handlers also can't be launched. The result is a triple fault and reboot of the machine. Fix that by restoring the GDT back to the fixmap GDT which is also mapped in the user page-table.
