Subject[PATCH 03/12] mips: Combine memblock init and memory reservation loops
Date
Before bootmem was completely removed from the kernel, the last loop
in the bootmem_init() had been used to reserve the correspondingly
marked regions, initialize sparsemem sections and to free the low memory
pages, which then would be used for early memory allocations. After the
bootmem removing patchset had been merged the loop was left to do the first
two things only. But it didn't do them quite well.

First of all it leaves the BOOT_MEM_INIT_RAM memory types unreserved,
which is definitely bug (although it isn't noticeable due to being used
by the kernel region only, which is fully marked as reserved). Secondly
the reservation is supposed to be done for any memory including the
high one. (I couldn't figure out why the highmem was ignored in the first
place, since platforms and dts' may declare any memory region for
reservation) Thirdly the reserved_end variable had been used here to not
accidentally free memory occupied by kernel. Since we already reserved the
corresponding region higher in this method there is no need in using the
variable here anymore. Fourthly the sparsemem should be aware of all the
memory types in the system including the ROM_DATA even if it is going to
be reserved for the whole system uptime. Finally after all these notes are
fixed the loop of memory reservation can be freely merged into the memory
installation loop as it's done in this patch.
