RAS uses RTAS arguments that might be above RMO/4GB

The EPOW stuff in ras.c passes pointers from the stack into RTAS.
There's a risk that they end up above 4GB and/or above RMO, which makes
RTAS choke. We're seeing a couple of these at the moment, so I'd like to
fix this to rule it out.
Does attached patch look sane? I'm not 100% sure what context it might
be called from, but I figured doing local structure copies is safer than
holding the lock over log_error().
