As I requested in version 14:

  The intent of the helper functions is related to properties whose values are
   tuples of the same format as the "reg" property of the "/memory" nodes.  For
   example, the "linux,usable-memory-range" and "linux,elfcoredhr" properties of
   the "/chosen" node.

   The patch header and the function names should be updated to reflect this intent.

Missing list of changes since version 14.

In v14 I requested:

   Please add comment:

   /* helper functions for arm64 kexec */

In v14, I requested:

   Please rename as fdt_len_added_prop()

I'm not really happy with my suggested name, but do not have a
better one yet.  As Rob notes, maybe David G will have a helpful
comment.

In v14 I requested:

Please rename as cpu64_to_fdt_cells()

In v14 I requested:

   Should also check that base + size does not wrap around.
