Hi, thanks for considering kexec usage,

but I think "boot_params_rsdp_exist" is not necessary,
boot_params->acpi_rsdp_addr should be either NULL or a valid value if
I, later initialization code considers it a valid value if it's not
NULL.

For the usage for Xen I'm not sure either, the info comes from commit
message of ae7e1238e68f2a that's also where boot_params.acpi_rsdp_addr
is first introduced, lets cc Juergen as well.
