This is a preparatory patch set for adding kexec_file support on arm64.

It was originally included in a arm64 patch set[1], but Philipp is also
working on their kexec_file support on s390[2] and some changes are now
conflicting.

So these common parts were extracted and put into a separate patch set for
better integration. What's more, my original patch#4 was split into a few
small chunks for easier review after Dave's comment.

As such, the resulting code is basically identical with my original, and
the only *visible* differences are:
  * renamings of _kexec_kernel_image_probe() and
    _kimage_file_post_load_cleanup()
  * change one of types of arguments at prepare_elf64_headers()
Those, unfortunately, require a couple of trivial changes on the rest
(#1, #6 to #13) of my arm64 kexec_file patch set[1].

Patch#1 allows making a use of purgatory optional, particularly useful
for arm64.
Patch#2 commonalizes arch_kexec_kernel_{image_probe, image_load,
verify_sig}() and arch_kimage_file_post_load_cleanup() across architectures.
Patch#3-#7 is also intended to generalize parse_elf64_headers(), along with
exclude_mem_range(), to be made best re-use of.

Changes in v2 (Mar 6, 2018)
* use IS_ENABLED() instead of #ifdef's in kexec_calculate_store_digests() 
* rename _kexec_kernel_*() and make them static for now except for
  kexec_image_probe_default() which is actually used by arch(powerpc) code
  (Note: kexec_image_post_load_cleanup_default() will also be exported by
  arm64 patches.)
* change a type of kernel_map in prepare_elf64_headers() to "int"
* check for a total number of system ram regions in full_up_crash_elf_data()
  and use vzalloc() instead of vmalloc()

AKASHI Takahiro (7):
  kexec_file: make an use of purgatory optional
  kexec_file,x86,powerpc: factor out kexec_file_ops functions
  x86: kexec_file: purge system-ram walking from prepare_elf64_headers()
  x86: kexec_file: remove X86_64 dependency from prepare_elf64_headers()
  x86: kexec_file: lift CRASH_MAX_RANGES limit on crash_mem buffer
  x86: kexec_file: clean up prepare_elf64_headers()
  kexec_file, x86: move re-factored code to generic side
