SubjectRe: [PATCH] kernel/crash: make parse_crashkernel()'s return value more indicant

I'm not entirely sure what you are trying to say here, but '-1' is not an
improvement at all. We surely are not short of proper error codes, right?

Also I don't see any positive return value > 0. So what is this about:

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ????

and this ?

Again.

And some more.

Without an explanation why this proceedes on error codes other than EINVAL
this is uncomprehensible. Comments exist for a reason.

Well, this is incomprehensible as well. The pr_warn() says invalid and then
you change the error code to something magic.

Thanks,
