Thanks for the new release.

FYI, the efi kernel patch has been merged into 3.15 kernel:
commit a3530e8fe980f756b823d451fe9243f26db95fa5

    x86/efi: Do not export efi runtime map in case old map
    For ioremapped efi memory aka old_map the virt addresses are not persistant
    across kexec reboot. kexec-tools will read the runtime maps from sysfs then
    pass them to 2nd kernel and assuming kexec efi boot is ok. This will cause
    kexec boot failure.
    To address this issue do not export runtime maps in case efi old_map so
    userspace can use no efi boot instead.
