Are you not seeing this on v4.0-rc1 without the patchset applied?

Could the crash be inside the subsequent call to
SetVirtualAddressMap() instead of inside ExitBootServices()?

If so, you have a firmware bug: Mark Rutland spotted a similar bug in
the AMD Seattle firmware, which has been fixed in the mean time.
It has to do with the firmware dereferencing the virtual mapping as it
is being installed, which violates the UEFI spec.
