So yea, I suspect the hikey dts isn't quite right here then. I've
always thought how it setup the memory was a bit strange:
So from your mail, I suspect the hole in the memory map for the pstore
buffer isn't correct, and we should rework that.
I'll give that a shot here and make sure pstore still works properly.
