Subject[PATCH] x86/e820: don't merge consecutive E820_PRAM ranges
Commit 917db484dc6a "x86/boot: Fix kdump, cleanup aborted E820_PRAM
max_pfn manipulation" fixed up the broken manipulations of max_pfn in
the presence of E820_PRAM ranges. However, it also broke the
sanitize_e820_map() support for not merging E820_PRAM ranges.
Re-introduce the enabling to keep resource boundaries between
consecutive defined ranges. Otherwise, for example, an environment that
boots with memmap=2G!8G,2G!10G will end up with a single 4G /dev/pmem0
device instead of a /dev/pmem0 and /dev/pmem1 device 2G in size.
