I fail to understand why the availability of memory hotplug information
would allow to extend the lower limit of bottom-up memblock allocations
below the kernel. The memory in the physical range [0, kernel_start) can be
allocated as soon as the kernel memory is reserved.

The extents of the memory node hosting the kernel image can be used to
limit memblok allocations from that particular node, even in top-down mode.
