Of course you're right. I misunderstood the original issue.

It's hard to tell how locked down various files are. There's at least
some alignment going on for  cpu_microcode_blob.bin, mrc.cache,
uefi_nvs.bin and fsp.bin, but there may be more to it.

Tweaking -position and -align values for mrc.cache and uefi_nvs.bin
should provide enough space for a larger payload.
Given that uefi_nvs.bin is not mentioned in current master, I have no
idea how that came to be.
