    Hm, this seems like an epic FAIL.

    First of all, the current code still limits it to 896 MiB, so 512 MiB is
    not a significant restriction.

    Second, this patch only applies if "crashkernel=" is not specified, so
    it doesn't even apply to your situation.

    Third, if you have to specify "crashkernel=" that means that there is
    yet another problem here that should be fixed.
