[PATCH 0/3] PM / hibernate: Fix hibernation panic caused by inconsistent e820 memory map

From: Chen Yu
Date: Thu Aug 27 2015 - 03:02:33 EST

This patchset is mainly to fix a hibernation panic caused by
BIOS's inconsistent e820 memory map. It is unlikely that the BIOS
will be fixed one by one, as this panic is seen on multiple machines
in field already.

This patchset is composed of 3 sub patches:

patch 1 is to remove E820_RESERVED_KERN region from kernel that,
the resuming will not fail because of non-page-aligned regions brought
by E820_RESERVED_KERN. This patch is the base of patch 2 and patch 3.

patch 2 is the core patch that fixes the hibernation panic, by checking
each page frame's validation during resuming. This patch was once merged
but reverted due to regression described in patch 1.

patch 3 is to ensure that, system with larger memory size compared to the
one before hibernation, will get the permission to resume.
Please refer to the changelog in patch 3 for detail.
