Hi Rafael,

Sorry for that.
The problem is: in a machine, some numa nodes are hotpluggable, some are
not. The kernel should use the memory in unhotpluggable.
But when extracting kernel, kaslr may chooose the memory in hotpluggable
or unhotpluggable node. The ACPI SRAT table can show the node is
hotpluggable or not. But the acpi_boot_table_init runs in setup_arch,
which is after extracting kernel. So I imitate the initialization in
acpi_boot_table_init to get the table before extracting kernel. And
mark the memory region in hotpluggable node to avoid kaslr extracting
kernel in these regions.
