As I've already alluded to in another mail, ontop of this there should
be a patch or multiple patches which clean this up more and perhaps even
split it into separate functions doing stuff in this order:

1. Parse all crashkernel= cmdline options

2. Do all crash_base, crash_size etc checks

3. Do the memory reservations

And all that supplied with comments explaining why stuff is being done.

This set of functions is a mess and there's no better time for cleaning
it up and documenting it properly than when you move it to generic code.

Thx.
