Rewrite that sentence.

Avoid having "This patch" or "This commit" in the commit message. It is
tautologically useless.

Also, do

$ git grep 'This patch' Documentation/process

for more details.

What errors?

That sentence I cannot parse.

IORES_DESC_RESERVED is supposed to represent E820_TYPE_RESERVED. And if
that is the case, then all three hunks below look wrong to me. If you
want to pass E820_TYPE_RESERVED ranges, then do that explicitly.

Good mailing practices for 400: avoid top-posting and trim the reply.
