Current calculation of max_low_pfn is introduced in commit af84eab20891
("[PATCH] uml: fix LVM crash"). It is intended to set max_low_pfn to the
same value as max_pfn.

But I am not sure why the max_pfn is set to totalram_pages, which
represents the number of usable pages in system instead of an absolute
page frame number. (The change history stops there.)

While we have already calculate it in setup_physmem(), so not necessary
to do it again.

Also this would help changing totalram_pages accounting, since we plan
to move the accounting into __free_pages_core(). With this change,
totalram_pages may not represent the total usable pages at this point,
since some pages would be deferred initialized.
