Subject[PATCH v12 7/9] kdump: add threshold for the required memory
Date
For crashkernel=X, if required size X is too large and leads to very
little free low memory after low allocation, the system may not work
normally.
So add a threshold and go for high allocation directly if the required
size is too large. The value of threshold is set as the half of the
low memory.
