Rework this patch, please.

Sounds good.

Hmm... why do you actually need to check whether you're running on a
PV machine in fdt_find_uefi_params()? Can't you infer that from the DT
params you discover?

I could understand maybe only accepting the "xen,uefi-system-table"
property if IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_XEN) but surely you don't also need to
filter based on whether you're booting a PV kernel?

Let me put it this way: when would you see "xen,uefi-system-table" and
*not* be booting a PV kernel?
