There seems to be some discussion about future support for SPARSEMEM
on ARM, although like I mentioned before, it doesn't appear to be
in the latest upstream kernel as of yet.
In any case, for it to apply to the crash utility, it should be a
matter of supplying the _MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS and _SECTION_SIZE_BITS
#define's that match the kernel's MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS and SECTION_SIZE_BITS.
And then in arm_init(), they should be initialized as you've shown
