why max_low_pfn is used here?

ok, to simplify the code, in setup.c you could move
#ifdef CONFIG_X86_64
        if (max_pfn > max_low_pfn) {
                /* can we preseve max_low_pfn ?*/
                max_low_pfn = max_pfn;
        }
#endif

before calling new init_memory_mapping()...

so you could remove the #idef. in init_memory_mapping.
