Today I did printk debug, it is in fact an off by one bug:
text start: 1000000 md start: 800000 md size: 800000

Below is the code:
if ((start+size >= __pa_symbol(_text)
&& start <= __pa_symbol(_end)) ||
!e820_all_mapped(start, start+size, E820_RAM) ||
memblock_is_region_reserved(start, size)) {
/* Could not reserve, skip it */

Will post a patch to fix it.
