Hi, Ivan,

I'm not familiar with memblock. If the following my ideas show my
ignorance, please forgive me.

First, not only the crash kernel is reserved early in memblock, but also
code, data, and bss are also reserved in bootmem_init():

/* Reserve memory occupied by kernel. */
memblock_reserve(__pa_symbol(&_text),
__pa_symbol(&_end) - __pa_symbol(&_text));

(CONFIG_NUMA is not enabled. NUMA platform reserved them is earlier.)

If there is something unsuitable with the crash kernel, is there something
unsuitable with the kernel memory?


Then, for_each_mem_range() is normal memory. Although memblock_reserve()
has used before that, it just adds memory to memblock.reserved. That means
it will still appear in memblock.memory. Thus, here I have a question,
do we need to use replace for_each_mem_range with for_each_mem_range_rev?

Finally, thank you for the patch, it makes me think a lot.

Thanks,
Jinyang
