kexec: premit reduction of the reserved memory size
Implement shrinking the reserved memory for crash kernel, if it is more than enough. For example, if you have already reserved 128M, now you just want 100M, you can do: # echo $((100*1024*1024)) > /sys/kernel/kexec_crash_size Note, you can only do this before loading the crash kernel.
