I could do that but it will slightly change the current logic.

Existing code does this:

                if (!(efi_guidcmp(guid, ACPI_TABLE_GUID)))
                        rsdp_addr = table;
                else if (!(efi_guidcmp(guid, ACPI_20_TABLE_GUID)))
                        return table;

I thought it was to return the table for ACPI_20_TABLE_GUID
if both tables exist.  If we remove rsdp_addr, the code will be:

                if (!(efi_guidcmp(guid, ACPI_TABLE_GUID)))
                        return table;
                else if (!(efi_guidcmp(guid, ACPI_20_TABLE_GUID)))
                        return table;

So if there are 2 tables, we return the one that comes first.
Is it ok?
