I tested this patch series on ARM64-ThunderX2 with no issue with
bootargs crashkenel=X@Y crashkernel=250M,low

$ dmesg | grep crash
[ 0.000000] crashkernel reserved: 0x0000000b81200000 -
0x0000000c81200000 (4096 MB)
[ 0.000000] Kernel command line:
BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-5.6.0-rc4+
root=UUID=866b8df3-14f4-4e11-95a1-74a90ee9b694 ro
crashkernel=4G@0xb81200000 crashkernel=250M,low nowatchdog earlycon
[ 29.310209] crashkernel=250M,low

$ kexec -p -i /boot/vmlinuz-`uname -r`
--initrd=/boot/initrd.img-`uname -r` --reuse-cmdline
$ echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/sysrq ; echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger

But when i tried with crashkernel=4G crashkernel=250M,low as bootargs.
Kernel is not able to allocate memory.
[ 0.000000] cannot allocate crashkernel (size:0x100000000)
[ 0.000000] Kernel command line:
BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-5.6.0-rc4+
root=UUID=866b8df3-14f4-4e11-95a1-74a90ee9b694 ro crashkernel=4G
crashkernel=250M,low nowatchdog
[ 29.332081] crashkernel=250M,low

does crashkernel=X@Y mandatory to get allocated beyond 4G?
am I missing something?
