  3ea86495aef2 ("efi/arm: preserve early mapping of UEFI memory map longer for BGRT")

deferred the unmap of the early mapping of the UEFI memory map to
accommodate the ACPI BGRT code, which looks up the memory type that
backs the BGRT table to validate it against the requirements of the UEFI spec.

Unfortunately, this causes problems on ARM, which does not permit
early mappings to persist after paging_init() is called, resulting
in a WARN() splat. Since we don't support the BGRT table on ARM anway,
let's revert ARM to the old behaviour, which is to take down the
early mapping at the end of efi_init().
