OK, I misunderstood it. We do have parse_crashkernel_simple() to handle 
crashkernel=size[@offset] case, to differente with other complicated
cases, like crashkernel=size,[high|low],

Then I am fine with this naming. Soryy about the noise.

By the way, do you think if we should take care of this case:
crashkernel=<range1>:<size1>[,<range2>:<size2>,...][@offset]

It can also specify @offset. Not sure if it's too complicated, you may
have a investigation.

These two cases have dependency on your crashkernel=X bug fix patch.
The current code only allow crashkernel= to reserve under 896MB. I
noticed Boris has agreed on the solution. Maybe you can repost a new
version based on the discussion.

[PATCHv7] x86/kdump: bugfix, make the behavior of crashkernel=X consistent with kaslr
