Hi Fan,

I know you got the code from acpica subsystem and EFI code... and do
many adaptation work for KASLR. It's awesome!

I think you can add some other simple comments.

- what differences between your function and the function you based on
and why did you do that?

... to make this more credible and easy to remember the details as time
goes on.

Also some concerns below.

s/efi/EFI/, also need fix in the comments below.

If we find the ACPI 2.0, we will return immediately, so the variable and
logic of _acpi_20_ is redundant.

Thanks,
