I would like to change them like below two cases. I personally prefer
the 2nd one. Feel free to take one you like better.

1)
 __efi_get_rsdp_addr() {

	size = efi_64 ? sizeof(efi_config_table_64_t):sizeof(efi_config_table_32_t);;

Or if/else sytle.

         for (i = 0; i < nr_tables; i++) {
                 config_tables += size;
                 if (efi_64) {
                         efi_config_table_64_t *tbl = (efi_config_table_64_t *)config_tables;
                         // get guid and table
                 } else {
                         efi_config_table_32_t *tbl = (efi_config_table_32_t *)config_tables;
                         // get guid and table
                 }
                 // check guid and return table if it's valid
         }
 }
 
2)
 __efi_get_rsdp_addr() {
         for (i = 0; i < nr_tables; i++) {
                 if (efi_64) {
			efi_config_table_64_t *tbl = (efi_config_table_64_t *)config_tables + i;
                         // get guid and table
                 } else {
			efi_config_table_32_t *tbl = (efi_config_table_32_t *)config_tables + i;
                         // get guid and table
                 }
                 // check guid and return table if it's valid
         }
 }
