Thanks for comments, Dave, Kairui and Baoquan.

The problem for me is it's a regression in v5.1-rc1, that breaks
existing setup. If early parsing of RSDP is required only for newly
supported configuration, I'm fine such configuration requires
new tools or new options.

This is the 1st version plus #ifdef around the EFI code.
Build tested both with and without CONFIG_EFI to see no warnings.

[PATCH v2] x86/boot: Use EFI setup data if provided

Commit 3a63f70bf4c3a ("x86/boot: Early parse RSDP and save it in
boot_params") broke kexec boot on EFI systems.  efi_get_rsdp_addr()
in the early parsing code tries to search RSDP from EFI table but
whose address is virtual.

Since kexec(1) provides physical address of config_table via boot_params,
efi_get_rsdp_addr() should look for setup_data in the same way as
efi_systab_init() in arch/x86/platform/efi/efi.c does.
