I still don't get it... We still need systab for kexec case as well
to get nr_tables. Don't we?

Shouldn't t efi_get_rsdp_addr() check "is_kexec_booted" and exit
early so that it never tries to use virtual config_tables pointer
if for some unknown resason kexec_get_rsdp_addr() failed.

Currently I check "is_kexec_booted" by subset of efi_get_setup_data_addr().
Do you know a simpler way to check "is_kexec_booted"?
