    x86/boot: Rename "real_mode" to "boot_params" · 6655e0aa
    Kees Cook authored
    The non-compressed boot code uses the (much more obvious) name
    "boot_params" for the global pointer to the x86 boot parameters. The
    compressed kernel loader code, though, was using the legacy name
    "real_mode". There is no need to have a different name, and changing it
    improves readability.
