It is set automatically by kexec-tools (once you load the crashkernel
via '-p' command line option).

See code in kexec/arch/arm/crashdump-arm.c:

int load_crashdump_segments(struct kexec_info *info, char *mod_cmdline)
* We allocate ELF core header from the end of the memory area reserved
* for the crashkernel. We align the header to SECTION_SIZE (which is
* 1MB) so that available memory passed in kernel command line will be
* aligned to 1MB. This is because kernel create_mapping() wants memory
* regions to be aligned to SECTION_SIZE.
elfcorehdr = add_buffer_phys_virt(info, buf, bufsz, bufsz, 1 << 20,
crash_reserved_mem.end, -1, 0);

dbgprintf("elfcorehdr: %#lx
", elfcorehdr);
cmdline_add_elfcorehdr(mod_cmdline, elfcorehdr);
