Subjectregression breaks lowmem reserved RAM
This is crashing at boot my lowmem reserved RAM patch. This is causing
GFP_DMA allocations at boot for no good reason. It crashes in my case
because there's no ram below 16M available to linux. Are you sure this
is needed at all, for sure if there's any bug this isn't the right fix.

Please reverse, thanks!
