The original value (1ULL << 32) is inaccurate, and it enlarged the CRASH_ADDR_LOW
upper limit. This is because when the memory is allocated from the low end,
the address cannot exceed CRASH_ADDR_LOW_MAX, see "if (!high)" branch. If
the memory is allocated from the high end, 'crash_base' is greater than or
equal to (1ULL << 32), and naturally, it is greater than CRASH_ADDR_LOW_MAX.

I think I should update the description, thanks.

if (!high)
crash_base = memblock_phys_alloc_range(crash_size,
CRASH_ALIGN, CRASH_ALIGN,
CRASH_ADDR_LOW_MAX);
if (!crash_base)
crash_base = memblock_phys_alloc_range(crash_size,
CRASH_ALIGN, CRASH_ALIGN,
CRASH_ADDR_HIGH_MAX);
