Why do we care about the memory map at all when a fault occurs during
the invocation of a EFI runtime service?

I think reasoning about what went wrong and why, and distinguishing
between allowable and non-allowable faults is a slippery slope, so
[taking Thomas's feedback into account], I think we can simplify this
series further and just block all subsequent EFI runtime services
calls if any permission or page fault occurs while executing them.

Would we still need to preserve the old memory map in that case?
