Thanks for adding me.

The Xen case is thought to prefer boot_params->acpi_rsdp_addr over all
other possibilities if set. This logic should be kept. It is used for
Xen PVH guests booted via grub2. Xen PVH guests don't have RSDP in low
memory, so this interface is needed.

In any case you should first try acpi_arch_get_root_pointer() as this
is the preferred way to override RSDP address.
