There is a reason why the RS table info can't currently be
obtained via a hypercall - Dom0 has nothing to do with it. Plus any
kexec-ed kernel (Linux or other) will, under EFI, want this
information, so a mechanism by which to pass the information to
the secondary kernel without exposing it to entities not having a
need to know would be preferable (albeit I have no idea so far
how that might look like).

Plus, this still doesn't in any way deal with the aspect that was
so far discussed in this thread - SetVirtualAddressMap() being
callable only once.
