Okay, but with this patch applied, we will just ignore rtas region, right?
Thus, when I echo 0 to free all the 128M crashkernel memory, the final
result will be 32M left, which means crash_size will still show 32M.
This looks odd.

How about skipping the 32M as a whole? I mean once the region being freed
has overlap with this rtas region, skip the whole rtas region, and let
crash_size
show 0?

Thanks.
