Or I clear this function as:
static acpi_physical_address get_rsdp_addr(void)
{
acpi_physical_address pa;

pa = get_acpi_rsdp();

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

if (!pa)
pa = efi_get_rsdp_addr();

if (!pa)
pa = bios_get_rsdp_addr();

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

return pa;
}

This version may look better, it does not need a bool.

Thanks,
Chao Fan
