Since any change now is affecting the x86 semantics slightly, I'd
suggest you drop this patch. We can add it later if needed, once the
core changes are in.

Thinking about this, if one requires a crashkernel reservation that
allocates all of the ZONE_DMA, it would probably be noticed and explicit
,high/,low options can be used.

Note that we are also trying to make ZONE_DMA full 32-bit on non-RPi4
hardware.
