+1.

crashkernel booting on arm64 machines which support boot via acpi
tables is broken since a long time, so it would be great to get these
into upstream asap.

I think the comment can be addressed while picking up the patchset in
the maintainer's tree.

I am not sure whether it will go through the ARM tree (Will) or the
EFI tree (Ard), but since this has a Tested-by (from myself) and
Reviewed-by (from James), probably this can be pulled in to allow
further tests via the maintainer's tree.
