+ Automatically reserve memory for a kexec kernel, so that you don't
+ need to specify numbers for the "crashkernel=X@Y" boot option,
+ instead you can use "crashkernel=auto". To make this work, you need
+ to have more than 4G memory.
+ On x86_32, 128M is reserved, on x86_64 1/32 of your memory is
+ reserved, but it will not exceed 4G.
