Maybe I mislead you. In my code, I need to find the eficonfig_table_*.
After that, I should type cast it to right
efi_config_table_32_t or efi_config_table_64_t.

Then my judgment is to compare its efi_info->efi_loader_signature.
If it's EFI64_LOADER_SIGNATURE, I will type cast it to efi_config_table_64_t.
If it's EFI32_LOADER_SIGNATURE, I will type cast it to efi_config_table_32_t.

But here is a issue, its signature matches EFI32_LOADER_SIGNATURE, but
it's table member is above 4G, but I use efi_config_table_32_t. That cause a problem.

Thanks,
Chao Fan
