And... the reason I left this in generic code was to avoid the problem
which you've created by doing this change - there is at least one PXA
platform which also can have SA1111 enabled, and by omitting this
reservation, you will make that platform blow up at boot time because
we will try and free the same region of RAM twice into the buddy

It was left there because one of these currently has to stay in generic
code, so they both need to in order to ensure that both are properly

What problem, other than a distaste for having such things in generic
code, are you having with this?
