Hi Kumar,

mem= command line option was being ignored in arch/powerpc if we were not a CONFIG_MULTIPLATFORM (which is handled via prom_init stub). The initial command line extraction and parsing needed to be moved earlier in the boot
process and have code to actual parse mem= and do something about it.

Why not make the mem= parsing an early_param() handler and then call
parse_early_param() here?
This would put constraints on the early_param()'s that I dont think
we should impose.
And I think a switch would be easier to read for the K/M/G handling.
I should probably use memparse() now that I've found it :)
