The function default_machine_kexec_prepare in
arch/powerpc/kernel/machine_kexec_64.c.

For the original kernel the map is ok:

Zone PFN ranges:
DMA 0 -> 16384
Normal 16384 -> 16384
early_node_map[2] active PFN ranges
0: 0 -> 8192
1: 8192 -> 16384

I also tried to pass maxcpus=1 for the command line of second kernel,
and it didn't work. How can I alternatively disable the node?

Loaded the kernel and crashed it with the commands:


[root@localhost ~]# kexec -p /boot/vmlinux-2.6.22-5.20070711bsckdump
--initrd=/boot/initrd-2.6.22-5.20070711bsckdump.img --append="maxcpus=1"
get memory ranges:1
Modified cmdline:maxcpus=1 elfcorehdr=41984K savemaxmem=1024M

segment[5].mem:0x9ff0000 memsz:65536
[root@localhost ~]# echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger

The boot output for the second kernel is:
