[PATCHv3 2/2] arm: use max_lowmem_limit in find_limit()

In commit: 1c2f87c22566cd057bc8cde10c37ae9da1a1bb76, the max_low is
set by memblock_get_current_limit(). However memblock.current_limit
can be changed by memblock_set_current_limit() any point before

It's better to use arm_lowmem_limit to be max_lowmem in two ways:
First, arm_lowmem_limit cannot be changed by a public API. Second, the
high_memory is set by arm_lowmem_limit and is a natural limit of
low memory area in bootmem_init().
