Where? In any case, that's not going to work well with EFI support 
assuming like arm64, 'memory' is passed in UEFI structures instead of 
DT. That's why there's now a /chosen linux,usable-memory-ranges 

Isn't the preferred kexec interface the file based interface? I'd 
expect a new arch to only support that. And there's common kexec DT 
handling for that pending for 5.13.
