Now we have limit kdump reseved under 896M, because kexec has the limitation.
and also bzImage need to stay under 4g.

To make kexec/kdump could use range above 4g, we need to make bzImage and
ramdisk could be loaded above 4g.
During booting bzImage will be unpacked on same postion and stay high.

The patches add fields in setup_header and boot_params to
1. get info about ramdisk position info above 4g from bootloader/kexec
2. get info about cmd_line_ptr info above 4g from bootloader/kexec
3. set xloadflags bit0 in header for bzImage and bootloader/kexec load
   could check that to decide if it could to put bzImage high.
4. use sentinel to make sure ext_* fields in boot_params could be used.

This patches is tested with kexec tools with local changes and they are sent
to kexec list later.

could be found at:

        git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/yinghai/linux-yinghai.git for-x86-boot

and it is on top of linus's tree 2013-01-24
plus tip:x86/mm, tip:x86/mm2

Thanks a lot for Stefano Stabellini on testing the branch with all xen configurations.
Thanks a lot for Konrad on testing with various iommu setups.
Thanks a lot for Borislav Petkov on reviewing and suggestion to make comments and changelog
a lot more readable.

-v2: add ext_cmd_line_ptr support, and handle boot_param/cmd_line is above
     4G case.
-v3: according to hpa, use xloadflags instead code32_start_offset.
     0x200 will not be changed...
-v4: move ext_ramdisk_image/ext_ramdisk_size/ext_cmd_line_ptr to boot_params.
     add handling cross GB boundary case.
-v5: put spare pages in BRK,so could avoid wasting about 4 pages.
     add check for bit USE_EXT_BOOT_PARAMS in xloadflags
-v6: use sentinel according to HPA
     add kdump load high support.
-v7: move sentinel from 0x1f0 to 0x1ef... according to HPA.
     Use HPA's #PF handler version instead of ioremap.
-v7u1: update changelog and comments, so it could break KGDB...
-v7u2: update changelog and comments, and clear more fields for sentinel.
     Update swiotlb autoswitch off patch.
     Fix crash with xen PV guest with 2G.
