[PATCH] efi: loader: Fix a boot freeze on some amd64 systems

Fix an issue when the boot process could freeze shortly after
displaying EFI framebuffer information on some amd64 systems.

Instead of calling the efi_copy_finish function from amd64_tramp,
include the copy instructions in the trampoline code itself.
This avoids boot hangs and restarts in the cases when
the EFI loader code and/or data segments happen to be located
at a memory location that is overwritten during the copy process.

Also, add missing return value checks. Add a new function that
prints a warning message if there is a danger that the bootloader
may attempt to overwrite memory pages of a type that should not
be overwritten.
