Even then, I don't think it's worth backporting this patch. membank->start
and membank->size are phys_addr_t, so with LPAE enabled, this check won't
trigger anyway. The #ifndef is just there for readability really (since the
printk message explicitly refers to 32-bit physical addresses).

So I wouldn't bother with this.
