There is no "default" case. Often you have a mixed zoo of memory regions
and the largest region isn't necessarily the best choice for the kernel.

Using the region with the highest priority (usually the fastet, not the
largest) can be a good default. Unless you think that your application
code can use that memory better than the kernel.

Also, with todays kernel sizes, there is often no choice.
