Yeah, doesn't look like something I suggested...

So this calls parse_crashkernel() and when that one fails, it calls this
new weird parse high/low helper you added.

But then all three end up in the same __parse_crashkernel() worker
function which seems to do the actual parsing.

What I suggested and what would be real clean is if the arches would
simply call a *single*

parse_crashkernel()

function and when that one returns, *all* crashkernel= options would
have been parsed properly, low, high, middle crashkernel, whatever...
and the caller would know what crash kernel needs to be allocated.

Then each arch can do its memory allocations and checks based on that
parsed data and decide to allocate or bail.

So it is getting there but it needs more surgery...

Thx.
