I agree, but I don't think there's a real need for us to hack
drivers/of/fdt_address.c in the meantime -- let's just target upstream
and not carry this in the kernel.

Akashi -- for now, I'll drop the kdump parts of this series which rely
on this helper. The majority of the series is actually independent and
can go in as-is.

I've pushed out a kexec branch to the arm64 tree for you to take a look
