[PATCH 4.4 10/30] x86/mm/32: Set the __vmalloc_start_set flag in initmem_init()

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

4.4-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Laura Abbott <labbott@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 861ce4a3244c21b0af64f880d5bfe5e6e2fb9e4a upstream.

'__vmalloc_start_set' currently only gets set in initmem_init() when
!CONFIG_NEED_MULTIPLE_NODES. This breaks detection of vmalloc address
with virt_addr_valid() with CONFIG_NEED_MULTIPLE_NODES=y, causing
a kernel crash:

[mm/usercopy] 517e1fbeb6: kernel BUG at arch/x86/mm/physaddr.c:78!

Set '__vmalloc_start_set' appropriately for that case as well.
