I guess Boris is suggesting code like below. Please correct me if I am
wrong.

static acpi_physical_address _efi_get_rsdp_addr(efi_config_table tbl, ...)
{
	/* Get EFI tables from systab. */
	for (i = 0; i < nr_tables; i++) {
		...
	}
	return rsdp_addr;
}

static acpi_physical_address efi_get_rsdp_addr(void)
{
	...
	/* Get systab from boot params. */		
	...
	/* Handle EFI bitness properly */
	...
	return _efi_get_rsdp_addr();
}


static acpi_physical_address kexec_get_rsdp_addr(void)
{
	if (!is_kexec_booted)
		return 0;

	efi_get_setup_data_addr();
	...
	/* Handle EFI bitness properly */
	...
	return _efi_get_rsdp_addr();
}

acpi_physical_address get_rsdp_addr(void)
{
        acpi_physical_address pa;

        pa = get_acpi_rsdp();

        if (!pa)
                pa = boot_params->acpi_rsdp_addr;


	/**
	/*I think here we should check if it's kexec booted firstly.
	 * Skip it if not kexec. this can avoid the wrong kexec virt
	 * addr parsing./
        if (!pa)
                pa = kexec_get_rdsp_addr();             <--- new function

        if (!pa)
                pa = efi_get_rsdp_addr();

        if (!pa)
                pa = bios_get_rsdp_addr();

        return pa;
}
