static acpi_physical_address kexec_get_rsdp_addr(void)
{
...
/* Get systab from boot params. */
systab = (efi_system_table_64_t *) (ei->efi_systab | ((__u64)ei->efi_systab_hi << 32));
if (!systab)
error("EFI system table not found in kexec boot_params.");

...
-> add error("hang me") here will have a hang
...
return __efi_get_rsdp_addr((unsigned long)esd->tables,
systab->nr_tables, true);

But add error("hang me") in __efi_get_rsdp_addr it did not hang.

It seems reference the systab pointer cause a system reset.

A question is does the identity mapping covered the memory address of
systab?

In my case it is 0xdad9ef18

If the memory is mapped on demand, then there will be problems, it
should cover setup_data and efi table space.

Thanks
Dave
