[PATCH v5 0/4] resource: Use list_head to link sibling resource

This patchset is doing:
1) Replace struct resource's sibling list from singly linked list to
list_head. Clearing out those pointer operation within singly linked
list for better code readability.
2) Based on list_head replacement, add a new function
walk_system_ram_res_rev() which can does reversed iteration on
iomem_resource's siblings.
3) Change kexec_file loading to search system RAM top down for kernel
loadin, using walk_system_ram_res_rev().

Note:
This patchset passed testing on my kvm guest, x86_64 arch with network
enabling. The thing we need pay attetion to is that a root resource's
child member need be initialized specifically with LIST_HEAD_INIT() if
statically defined or INIT_LIST_HEAD() for dynamically definition. Here
Just like we do for iomem_resource/ioport_resource, or the change in
get_pci_domain_busn_res().

Changelog:
v4->v5:
  Add new patch 0001 to move duplicated reparent_resources() to
  kernel/resource.c to make it be shared by different ARCH-es.

  Fix several code bugs reported by test robot on ARCH powerpc and
  microblaze.
v3->v4:
  Fix several bugs test robot reported. Rewrite cover letter and patch
  log according to reviewer's comment.

v2->v3:
  Rename resource functions first_child() and sibling() to
  resource_first_chils() and resource_sibling(). Dan suggested this.

  Move resource_first_chils() and resource_sibling() to linux/ioport.h
  and make them as inline function. Rob suggested this. Accordingly add
  linux/list.h including in linux/ioport.h, please help review if this
  bring efficiency degradation or code redundancy.

  The change on struct resource {} bring two pointers of size increase,
  mention this in git log to make it more specifically, Rob suggested
  this.

v1->v2:
  Use list_head instead to link resource siblings. This is suggested by
  Andrew.

  Rewrite walk_system_ram_res_rev() after list_head is taken to link
  resouce siblings.

Baoquan He (4):
  resource: Move reparent_resources() to kernel/resource.c and make it
    public
  resource: Use list_head to link sibling resource
  resource: add walk_system_ram_res_rev()
  kexec_file: Load kernel at top of system RAM if required
