SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] of/fdt: Don't worry about non-memory region overlap for no-map

I have no objections for this patch, but I afraid that this is a never
ending story of reservation vs nomap ordering and this won't be the last
fix in the area.

I was toying with the idea to use flags in memblock.reserved to have
clearer view of how the reserved memory was used and then we won't need
to guess firmware intentions.
Thoughts?

Do you mind adding the relevant pats of the device tree to the changelog?
