Please spend a little more time preparing the changelogs?

Why are we making this change? Because memblock_alloc_range() is
equivalent to memblock_find_in_range()+memblock_reserve() and it's just
a cleanup? Or is there some deeper functional reason?

Does memblock_find_in_range() need to exist? Can we convert all
callers to memblock_alloc_range()?
