Description

The loader code in efi subtree is broken about acpi tables, need to clean it up to extract acpi and smbios info from firmware tables.

To do that we will use efi_get_table() call to get pointers for smbios and acpi tables, and implement simple acpi_detect() call to set up the environment same way as it is done for bios version.
