      Introduce flags for reserve_bootmem() · 72a7fe39
      Bernhard Walle authored
      
      
      This patchset adds a flags variable to reserve_bootmem() and uses the
      BOOTMEM_EXCLUSIVE flag in crashkernel reservation code to detect collisions
      between crashkernel area and already used memory.
      
      This patch:
      
      Change the reserve_bootmem() function to accept a new flag BOOTMEM_EXCLUSIVE.
      If that flag is set, the function returns with -EBUSY if the memory already
      has been reserved in the past.  This is to avoid conflicts.
      
      Because that code runs before SMP initialisation, there's no race condition
      inside reserve_bootmem_core().
