Thank you for your comment, Dave! It was not that sophisticated choice, but
I thought that normal embedded system trying to reduce the BOM would have a
big-enough first memblock memory region. However you're right. There can be
exceptional systems. Then, how do you think about following manner:

diff --git a/arch/arm/mm/mmu.c b/arch/arm/mm/mmu.c

This will not limit the PTE-allocation to near the end of first bank.
