I keep asking *why*?

$ git grep -E "CRASH_ADDR_LOW\W"

I have no clue what you mean here.

I think you should explain why is (1ULL << 32) wrong.

It came from:

eb6db83d1059 ("x86/setup: Do not reserve crashkernel high memory if low reservation failed")

which simply frees the high memory portion when the low reservation
fails. And the test for that is, is crash base > 4G. So that makes
perfect sense to me.

So your change is a NOP on 64-bit and it is a NOP on 32-bit by virtue of
the _low() variant always returning 0 on 32-bit.
