Subject[PATCH 3/3] x86, crash: Allocate enough low-mem when crashkernel=high
Date
From: Joerg Roedel <jroedel@suse.de>

When the crashkernel is loaded above 4GiB in memory the
first kernel only allocates 72MiB of low-memory for the DMA
requirements of the second kernel. On systems with many
devices this is not enough and causes device driver
initialization errors and failed crash dumps. Set this
default value to 256MiB to make sure there is enough memory
available for DMA.
