SubjectRe: [PATCH] mm: bootmem: use phys_addr_t for physical addresses

So, a function which takes phys_addr_t for goal and limit but returns
void * doesn't make much sense unless the function creates directly
addressable mapping somewhere.

The right thing to do would be converting to nobootmem (ie. memblock)
and use the memblock interface. Have no idea at all whether that
would be a realistic short-term solution for arm.
