looks like we need to increase MAX_EARLY_RES_X in kernel/early_res.c

/*
* need to make sure this one is bigger enough before
* find_fw_memmap_area could be used
*/
#define MAX_EARLY_RES_X 32

struct early_res {
u64 start, end;
char name[15];
char overlap_ok;
};
static struct early_res early_res_x[MAX_EARLY_RES_X] __initdata;

static int max_early_res __initdata = MAX_EARLY_RES_X;


or can you check if setup_memory_map() can be moved that early?
(try to use early_param for mem=, so need to move that earlier)...
