OK.

Seems that I had replied Chao's question in another email. The naming
follows the function parse_crashkernel_simple(), as the notes above
the definition
/*
 * That function parses "simple" (old) crashkernel command lines like
 *
 * crashkernel=size[@offset]
 *
 * It returns 0 on success and -EINVAL on failure.
 */
static int __init parse_crashkernel_simple(char *cmdline,

Do you have alternative suggestion?

Thank you for the kindly review.
