I generally like it, two comments below.

If you change the name of the function, IMO it would be better to call it
something like acpi_reserve_wakeup_memory().  This way it would be clear what
the memory is reserved for.

Could we change the condition to avoid the "-1L" here?  It doesn't look very
nice.
