For future versions, please also cc the author of the original commit
you are fixing.

With CONFIG_RANDOMIZE_BASE we can get a further change to memstart_addr
after the place where you moved the initrd_{start,end} setting, which
would result in a different value for __phys_to_virt(phys_initrd_start).
