x86, boot: add linked list of struct setup_data
Huang, Ying [Fri, 28 Mar 2008 02:49:44 +0000 (10:49 +0800)]
This patch adds a field of 64-bit physical pointer to NULL terminated
single linked list of struct setup_data to real-mode kernel
header. This is used as a more extensible boot parameters passing
mechanism.
