As described in Documentation/riscv/vm-layout.rst, the end of the
virtual address space for 64-bit kernel is occupied by the modules/BPF/
kernel mappings so this actually reduces the amount of memory we are able
to map and then use in the linear mapping. So make sure this limit is
correctly set.

Fixes: c9811e379b21 ("riscv: Add mem kernel parameter support")

Should the Fixes tag be de043da0b9e7 (“RISC-V: Fix usage of memblock_enforce_memory_limit“),

The -PAGE_OFFSET is set to the maximal physical memory from this point :)

Oops, thank you!
