The behaviour of this #ifdef has disappeared, won't 32bit x86 now try and reserve a chunk
of unnecessary 'low' memory?

Previously reserve_crashkernel_low() was #ifdefed to do nothing if !CONFIG_X86_64, I don't
see how 32bit is skipping this reservation...

Why 128M? Wouldn't we rather each architecture tells us its minimum alignment?
