It looks this is indeed a complex issue and a lots of work is required to have
a thorough fix.

For now, I'm planning to make a patch to verify the assumption that the
physical memory in the range
[2MB, 2MB+EFI_STAGING_SIZE) is indeed Conventional Memory that doesn't contain
firmware/loader data/code:

if 'staging_end' is not in the same Conventional Memory block as 'staging', we
print a warning and decrease 'staging_end' to the end of the memory block.

This won't introduce new issues or risks, but can indeed help in the cases like
this bug. :-)
