Found in version: OVMF-20160419-2.git90bb4c5.el7.noarch

These references say it all:
- bug 1308678 comments 14 through 19,
- the thread at http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.bios.edk2.devel/12864

The fix is to set PcdCpuSmmStackGuard to TRUE, and PcdCpuSmmStackSize to 0x4000. Upstream is affected too.
