Subject[PATCH 07/25] lmb: Add lmb_find_in_range()
it is a wrapper for lmb_find_base

make it more easy for x86 to use lmb. ( rebase )
x86 early_res is using find/reserve pattern instead of alloc.

keep it in weak version, so later We can use x86 own version if needed.
also We need it in lib/lmb.c, so one caller mm/page_alloc.c could get compiled

-v2: Change name to lmb_find_in_range() according to Michael Ellerman
-v3: Add generic weak version __lmb_find_in_range()
so keep the path for fallback to x86 version that handle from low
-v4: use 0 for failing path
-v5: use LMB_ERROR again
-v6: remove __lmb_find_in_range()
