Indeed, this RFC currently breaks EFI Runtime Services at EL1. This
would need to be fixed in a new patchset.

The patch 10/11 also underlines that the current argument passing
method does not respect alignment. The way arguments are currently
pushed and pulled makes it quite hard to fix the issue. Any suggestion
would be welcome.

Unfortunately, I'm no longer working at ARM and my other projects keep
me very busy. I would also love to invest more time in this patchset to
have it upstream but I'm really unsure when I will be able to find the
time for this.
