During re-organize the code, it takes me a long time to figure out why
memblock_set_bottom_up(true) is added here, and how far can it be
deferred. And finally, I realize that it only takes effect after
e820__memblock_setup(), the point where memblock allocator can work.
So I concentrate the related code, and hope this patch can classify
this truth.

Sorry that during rebasing, merge trivial fix by mistake. I will build
against each patch.
