[PATCH 1/3] arm64: kdump: support reserving crashkernel above 4G

When crashkernel is reserved above 4G in memory, kernel should
reserve some amount of low memory for swiotlb and some DMA buffers.

Kernel would try to allocate at least 256M below 4G automatically
as x86_64 if crashkernel is above 4G. Meanwhile, support
crashkernel=X,[high,low] in arm64.
