I've finally spent some time debugging this, and found the fix:

--- a/kexec/arch/riscv/kexec-riscv.c
+++ b/kexec/arch/riscv/kexec-riscv.c
@@ -120,7 +120,7 @@ int load_extra_segments(struct kexec_info *info,
uint64_t kernel_base,
                               initrd_base + initrd_size);

                dbgprintf("Base addr for initrd image: 0x%lX\n", initrd_base);
-               min_usable = initrd_base;
+               max_usable = initrd_base;
        }

the initrd image has been put at end of memory space( from high
address down to low address),
for example, my case here:
  the crash memory: 0x90000000 - 0xA0000000
  and the initrd base: 0x9F78F000

so, the max_usable address need to update
