ACPICA: acpidump: Add support to force using RSDT.
This patch adds "-x" and "-x -x" options to disable XSDT for acpidump. The single "-x" can be used to stop using XSDT, RSDT will be forced to find static tables, note that XSDT will still be dumped. The double "-x" can stop dumping XSDT, which is useful when the XSDT address reported by RSDP is pointing to an invalid address. It is reported there are platforms having broken XSDT shipped, acpidump will stop working while accessing such XSDT. This patch adds new option so that users can force acpidump to dump tables listed in the RSDT. Lv Zheng.
