x86, kdump: Retore crashkernel= to allocate under 896M
Vivek found old kexec-tools does not work new kernel anymore. So change back crashkernel= back to old behavoir, and add crashkernel_high= to let user decide if buffer could be above 4G, and also new kexec-tools will be needed. -v2: let crashkernel=X override crashkernel_high= update description about _high will be ignored by crashkernel=X -v3: update description about kernel-parameters.txt according to Vivek.
