[Xen-devel] [PATCH v2] ACPI: Prevent acpi_table_entries from falling into a infinite loop

If a buggy BIOS programs an ACPI table with entry length 0 then
acpi_table_entries gets stuck in an infinite loop.

To aid debugging, report the error and exit the loop.

Based on Linux kernel commit 369d913b242cae2205471b11b6e33ac368ed33ec
