Now we have limit kdump reseved under 896M, because kexec has the limitation.
and also bzImage need to stay under 4g.

kernel parts changes could be found at:
        git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/yinghai/linux-yinghai.git for-x86-boot

here patches are for kexec tools to load bzImage and ramdisk high acccording
to new added boot header fields.

  Add min/max macro
  x86: add boot header member for version 2.12
  add mem64_min/max control
  Move out mem_min/max checking in locate_hole
  seperate checking 64bit mem range
  debug print out for add_buf
  x86: put ramdisk high for 64bit bzImage
  x86: put 64bit bzImage high
