All agreed, will update all of them, thanks.

About this place, do you think below change is OK to you?

~~~
The current code only builds identity mapping for physical memory during
kexec-type loading. The regions reserved by firmware are not covered.
In the later code change, the boot decompressing code of kexec-ed kernel
will try to access EFI systab and ACPI tables, lacking identity mapping for
them will cause error and reset system to firmware.

Thanks
