Subject[PATCH 1/2 v7] resource: add the new I/O resource descriptor 'IORES_DESC_RESERVED'
Date
The upstream kernel can not accurately add the e820 reserved type to
kdump krenel e820 table.

Kdump uses walk_iomem_res_desc() to iterate io resources, then adds
the matched resource ranges to the e820 table for kdump kernel. But,
when convert the e820 type into the iores descriptor, several e820
types are converted to 'IORES_DESC_NONE' in this function e820_type
_to_iores_desc(). So the walk_iomem_res_desc() will get unnecessary
types(such as E820_TYPE_RAM/E820_TYPE_UNUSABLE/E820_TYPE_KERN) when
walk through io resources by the descriptor 'IORES_DESC_NONE'.

This patch adds the new I/O resource descriptor 'IORES_DESC_RESERVED'
for the iomem resources search interfaces. It is helpful to exactly
match the reserved resource ranges when walking through iomem resources.
