As far as I can tell loongsoon3 initially sets max_low_pfn in
node_mem_init(0) and then re-evaluates it in paging_init(). So it seems
that in this case the limit would be wrong for a system with more than one
node, but it would be set to some usable value.

As for SGI-IP27, the initialization of max_low_pfn as late as in
paging_init() seems to be broken because it's value is used in
arch_mem_init() and in finalize_initrd() anyway.

AFAIU, both platforms set max_low_pfn to last available pfn, so it seems we
can simply do

	max_low_pfn = PFN_PHYS(memblock_end_of_DRAM())

in the prom_meminit() function for both platforms and drop the loop
evaluating max_low_pfn in paging_init().
