I completely fail to see why you still need those two. They are exactly
the same thing as lmb_reserve() and lmb_free(), just with a slightly
different prototype.

Nah, if you have some use of the wrappers to ease the transition from
the existing x86 code, then just make up a couple of inline wrappers
somewhere inside the x86 code. You may not even want to call it
lmb_* at all...

But here, I'll let Thomas and Peter decide what to do, it's really
x86 stuff at this stage. I don't want to see two subtlely different
APIs at the LMB level doing the same thing.
