SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] x86/boot: Use efi_setup_data for searching RSDP on kexec-ed kernel
Hi,

I have test your PATCH in Qemu guest:
----------
Fedora 29 (Workstation Edition)
Kernel 5.1.0-rc3+ on an x86_64 (ttyS0)

Physical KASLR disabled: no suitable memory region!
------

I am not sure whether I have done the right test.
This guest is booted from EFI. Here we can see the kexeced kernel
has completed the compressed boot stage. So I think your PATCH works.

Thanks,
Chao Fan
