[PATCH] kexec: reserve Bootmem fix for booting nondefault location kernel
Vivek Goyal [Sat, 25 Jun 2005 21:57:51 +0000 (14:57 -0700)]
This patch fixes a problem with reserving memory during boot up of a kernel
built for non-default location.  Currently boot memory allocator reserves
the memory required by kernel image, boot allocaotor bitmap etc.  It
assumes that kernel is loaded at 1MB (HIGH_MEMORY hard coded to 1024*1024).
 But kernel can be built for non-default locatoin, hence existing
hardcoding will lead to reserving unnecessary memory.  This patch fixes it.
