Right. Missed that part. The old code just doesn't set the kernel memory free
calling the free_bootmem() method for non-reserved parts below reserved_end.

Good point. I'll move this change into the "[PATCH 05/14] MIPS: memblock:
Add reserved memory regions to memblock". It logically belongs to that place.
Since basically by the arch_mem_addpart() calls we reserve all the kernel
memory now I'd also merged them into a single call for the range [_text, _end].
What do you think?
