Sorry about this. I should ask you firstly before doing it this way. I will drop it.

Yes, this works well.
A minor issue, replace memblock_remove(start, end) with memblock_remove(start, end - start).

The same as above. Replace memblock_remove_range(&memblock.reserved, start, end) with
memblock_remove_range(&memblock.reserved, start, end - start).
