    Subjectx86: Add /sys/firmware/memmap
    Date
    This patch series adds a new interface /sys/firmware/memmap
    to export the BIOS (Firmware) provided memory map via sysfs
    for usage with kexec.

    While the first patch adds the generic interface, the second
    patch implements that interface for E820 on x86. EFI is on the TODO
    list, and other architectures can be added later.

    This patch is RFC. It has been tested on x86-64 and i386 and
    replaces my previous attemt that adds such an interface via
    procfs.
