    Subject[PATCH] mm,x86: initialize high mem before free_all_bootmem()
    Patch fixes boot crash with my previous patch "mm,x86: remove
    debug_pagealloc_enabled" applied:

    CR2: 00000000f6fefe80

    Crash can happen when memblock want to allocate big area for temporary
    "struct range" array and reuse pages from top of low memory, which were
    already passed to the buddy allocator.

    Would be good to apply this patch before "mm,x86: remove
    debug_pagealloc_enabled" to prevent problem be possibly
    observable during bisection.
