This patchset adds support to input system memory range based memory size
for fadump reservation. The crashkernel parameter already supports such
syntax. The first patch refactors the parsing code of crashkernel parameter
for reuse. The second patch uses the newly refactored parsing code to reserve
memory for fadump based on system memory size.
