Yah, stupid ifdeffery.

No, it shouldn't.

kexec_get_rsdp_addr() must do:

if (!kexec_kernel)
return 0:
esd = (struct efi_setup_data *)get_kexec_setup_data_addr();
if (!esd)

Now I need to go figure out whether there's a reliable way to know in
the kexec kernel that it *is* a kexec kernel.


Good mailing practices for 400: avoid top-posting and trim the reply.
