Thanks for the mailer update, it applied cleanly.

1) Please place a blank line after the above early_param before
the comment block.

2) /** says it is kernel doc format, so you need to follow the rules.
The description should fit on one line (I might say: ... with the initrd,
page aligned.) and you have to document the parameters. (Or just make
it a simple comment block by removing the second *)

need a blank line after the function before this comment block too.

If you use pr_info then the above again fits on one line.
(this is what triggered my formatting and whitespace review).

Although I would then add a blank line before the loop for readability.

Nit: Looking at the whole file I would put this after mem_init
because that puts it next to the other code that sets page counts,
clears PageReerved, and hands pages to page_alloc.
