What is the difference between first_memblock_size and init_mem_size, in
terms of what you expect setup_initial_memory_limit to do with them?

Can you just pass in min(first_memblock_size, init_mem_size), with the
non-ePAPR fallback handled in head_8xx.S (just load r30 with 8M instead
of zero)?

Line length.
Yes, I know there's an existing violation on the previous line. :-)

It seems a bit odd for this function to take init_mem_size on these other
platforms, but not use it.
