Subject[PATCH 4.9 011/104] MIPS: kexec: Do not reserve invalid crashkernel memory on boot
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Marcin Nowakowski <marcin.nowakowski@imgtec.com>


[ Upstream commit a8f108d70c74d83574c157648383eb2e4285a190 ]

Do not reserve memory for the crashkernel if the commandline argument
points to a wrong location. This can happen if the location is specified
wrong or if the same commandline is reused when starting the crashkernel
- in the latter case the reserved memory would point to the location
from which the crashkernel is executing.
