This patch causes unhandled page faults in mixed mode:

EFI apparently tries to write to now read-only memory.

See:
https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1168645

Reverting it on the top of 5.6 fixes the issue.

I am using
/usr/share/qemu/ovmf-ia32-code.bin
/usr/share/qemu/ovmf-ia32-vars.bin
from qemu-ovmf-ia32-202002-1.1.noarch rpm.
