Yes, definitely helpful for kdump kernel. This can help reduce the
crashkernel value.

Previously I was thinking about something similar, play around the
e820 entry passed to kdump and let it place swiotlb in wanted region.
Simply remap it like in this patch looks much cleaner.

If this patch is acceptable, one more patch is needed to expose the
swiotlb in iomem, so kexec-tools can pass the right kernel cmdline to
second kernel.
