Does this file still need its memblock.h include?

The only caller is also guarded by these same ifdefs. Can't we remove this and
rely on the compilers dead-code elimination to remove this function when its not
needed?

Keeping this patch as 'just' moving code would avoid having to play
spot-the-difference:

> + if (kbuf->image->type == KEXEC_TYPE_CRASH)
> + return func(&crashk_res, kbuf);

This will be new for powerpc, but any attempt to use it should be caught by
arch_kexec_kernel_image_probe(), which has:
| /* We don't support crash kernels yet. */
| if (image->type == KEXEC_TYPE_CRASH)
| return -EOPNOTSUPP;


Looks good to me! For what its worth:

Thanks,
