Hi Dave, actually only kexec_file_load will always set the
boot_params->acpi_rsdp_addr. Can't guarantee how user space tools will
prepare the boot_prams if kexec_load is used, so it's should very
likely to happen.

And for the patch, I also think the first patch looks better, if we
just return 0 early in efi_get_rsdp_addr aren't we still failing to
parse the rsdp in early code?
