In my understanding, in EFI issue, RSDP is from efi_get_rsdp_addr() or
kexec_get_rdsp_addr()(only in kexec environment). So in these two functions
only one can be excuted, so how about this:

if (is_kexec_booted)
pa = kexec_get_rdsp_addr(); <--- new function
else
pa = efi_get_rsdp_addr();

And also split the same code as _efi_get_rsdp_addr().
If there is something wrong in my understanding, please let me know.

Thanks,
