Subject[Resend Patch] kexec: allow to shrink reserved memory

This patch implements shrinking the reserved memory for crash kernel,
if it is more than enough.

For example, if you have already reserved 128M, now you just want 100M,
you can do:

# echo $((100*1024*1024)) > /sys/kernel/kexec_crash_size
Note, you can only do this before loading the crash kernel.
