x86/boot: Fix kdump, cleanup aborted E820_PRAM max_pfn manipulation
commit 917db484dc6a69969d317b3e57add4208a8d9d42 upstream. In commit: ec776ef6bbe1 ("x86/mm: Add support for the non-standard protected e820 type") Christoph references the original patch I wrote implementing pmem support. The intent of the 'max_pfn' changes in that commit were to enable persistent memory ranges to be covered by the struct page memmap by default. However, that approach was abandoned when Christoph ported the patches [1], and that functionality has since been replaced by devm_memremap_pages(). In the meantime, this max_pfn manipulation is confusing kdump [2] that assumes that everything covered by the max_pfn is "System RAM". This results in kdump hanging or crashing.
