    Function signature looks good.

    But on a platform with firmware based memory retaining facilitites
    we're going to need to invoke this way before bootmem or memblocks are
    even setup, because the retain call influences the free memory lists
    that the firmware gives to us and those free memory lists are what we
    use to populate the memblock tables.
