Yes, exactly.

Good suggestion.

Yeah.

OK, thanks! Here is the updated patch.

resources: introduce generic page_is_ram()

It's based on walk_system_ram_range(), for archs that don't have
their own page_is_ram().

The static verions in MIPS and SCORE are also made global.

v4: prefer plain 1 instead of PAGE_IS_RAM (H. Peter Anvin)
v3: add comment (KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki)
"AFAIK, this "System RAM" information has been used for kdump to
grab valid memory area and seems good for the kernel itself."
v2: add PAGE_IS_RAM macro (Américo Wang)
