[Xen-devel] [PATCH] ACPI: fix APEI related table size checking

On Huang Ying's machine:

erst_tab->header_length == sizeof(struct acpi_table_einj)

but Yinghai reported that on his machine,

erst_tab->header_length == sizeof(struct acpi_table_einj) -
sizeof(struct acpi_table_header)

To make erst table size checking code works on all systems, both
testing are treated as PASS.

Same situation applies to einj_tab->header_length, so corresponding
table size checking is changed in similar way too.

- use switch() for better readability
- add comment explaining why a formally invalid size it also being
- check erst_tab->header.length before even looking at
- prefer sizeof(*erst_tab) over sizeof(struct acpi_table_erst)
