the new early_res.c is extension to lmb.

it will
1. add find_lmb_area
2. add check_double_region array with find_lmb_area
3. free_early and reserve_early is wrapper for lmb_free, and lmb_reserve with array size checking
4. some other generizing function like lmb_register_active_regions and lmb_hole_size that could be all lmb users.

so it is seperated file at point.

if lmb guys are happy, we can merge early_res.c and lmb.c. just put them in one file.

Thanks

Yinghai
