Subject[PATCH 5/9] kstaled: skip non-RAM regions.
Date
Add a pfn_skip_hole function that shrinks the passed input range in order to
skip over pfn ranges that are known not bo be RAM backed. The x86
implementation achieves this using e820 tables; other architectures
use a generic no-op implementation.
