Hmm, if CONFIG_DEBUG_BOOT_PARAMS is not set, then kexec-tools should
fail getting efi_info, so I will fix kexec-tools patch about this.

Also CONFIG_EFI_RUNTIME_MAP should select CONFIG_DEBUG_BOOT_PARAMS.
In future will try to move the boot params data out of debugfs.

Will fix, thanks for testing.

Do you means to add "efi:" in subject?
