Subject[PATCH v5] powerpc: Force page alignment for initrd reserved memory
When using 64K pages with a separate cpio rootfs, U-Boot will align
the rootfs on a 4K page boundary. When the memory is reserved, and
subsequent early memblock_alloc is called, it will allocate memory
between the 64K page alignment and reserved memory. When the reserved
memory is subsequently freed, it is done so by pages, causing the
early memblock_alloc requests to be re-used, which in my case, caused
the device-tree to be clobbered.

This patch forces the reserved memory for initrd to be kernel page
aligned, and adds the same range extension when freeing initrd. It
will also move the device tree if it overlaps with the reserved memory
for initrd.

Many thanks to Milton Miller for his input on this patch.
