Subject: [PATCH v2] ACPI / tables: table override from built-in initrd

In some scenario, we need to build initrd with kernel in a single image.
This can simplify system deployment process by downloading the whole system
once, such as in IC verification.

This patch adds support to override ACPI tables from built-in initrd.

v2: change "upgrade" to "override" as it's more accurate
