OK I got it, reproduced it too.

Here are the relevant logs:

	[    0.000000]   DMA      [mem 0x00000000802f0000-0x00000000bfffffff]
	[    0.000000]   DMA32    [mem 0x00000000c0000000-0x00000000ffffffff]
	[    0.000000]   Normal   [mem 0x0000000100000000-0x00000097fcffffff]

As you can see ZONE_DMA spans from 0x00000000802f0000-0x00000000bfffffff which
is slightly smaller than 1GB.

	[    0.000000] crashkernel reserved: 0x000000009fe00000 - 0x00000000bfe00000 (512 MB)

Here crashkernel reserved 512M in ZONE_DMA.

	[    0.000000] cma: Failed to reserve 512 MiB

CMA tried to allocate 512M in ZONE_DMA which fails as there is no enough space.
Makes sense.

A fix could be moving crashkernel reservations after CMA and then if unable to
fit in ZONE_DMA try ZONE_DMA32 before bailing out. Maybe it's a little over the
top, yet although most devices will be fine with ZONE_DMA32, the RPi4 needs
crashkernel to be reserved in ZONE_DMA.

My knowledge of Kdump is limited, so I'd love to see what Catalin has to say.
Here's a tested patch of what I'm proposing:
