My preference would be for physical addresses to always be phys_addr_t, but as
long as we can easily spot the difference kexec-time versus runtime addresses,
it will save bugs where we use the wrong one.

via arch_kexec_walk_mem()? Got it.

But strangely the buf_min and buf_max still matter because
locate_mem_hole_callback() uses them.

No, (I try to batch replies to avoid that happening).
I'm reading up on Secure-boot and trying to test the pe_verification stuff...


Thanks,
