Subject[PATCH 4/4] kcore: remove noise from walk_memory_resource
From: KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki <kamezawa.hiroyu@jp.fujitsu.com>

Originally, walk_memory_resource() was introduced to traverse all memory
of "System RAM" for detecting memory hotplug/unplug range.
For doing so, flags of IORESOUCE_MEM|IORESOURCE_BUSY was used and this
was enough for memory hotplug because scanning range was controlled properly.
But for using other purpose, /proc/kcore, this may includes some firmware
area marked as IORESOURCE_BUSY | IORESOUCE_MEM. This patch makes the check
strict to find out busy "System RAM".
Note: PPC64 keeps their own walk_memory_resouce(), which walk through
ppc64's lmb informaton. Because old kclist_add() is called per lmb,
this patch makes no difference in behavior, finally.

Changelog v2:
- new patch from v2.
