After tracing the kernel code,
is it even possible to move CONFIG_RANDOMIZE_BASE part of code ahead
of memory_limit?

that mean the flow may look like below:
now2:
if (memstart_addr + linear_region_size < memblock_end_of_DRAM()) {} ---(a)
if (IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_RANDOMIZE_BASE)) {} ---(d)
if (memory_limit != PHYS_ADDR_MAX) {} ---(b)
if (IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD) && phys_initrd_size) {} ---(c)

in (b), the result of __pa_symbol(_text), memory_limit,
memblock_mem_limit_remove_map and memblock_add
are not depended on memsart_addr.
So the now2 flow can grouping modification of memstart_address, put
(a) and (d) together.

Sincerely Appreciate your comment.
