[PATCH 3.18 27/38] MIPS: init: Ensure reserved memory regions are not added to bootmem

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Sun Nov 19 2017 - 09:31:17 EST

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


From: Marcin Nowakowski <marcin.nowakowski@xxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit e89ef66d7682f031f026eee6bba03c8c2248d2a9 ]

Memories managed through boot_mem_map are generally expected to define
non-crossing areas. However, if part of a larger memory block is marked
as reserved, it would still be added to bootmem allocator as an
available block and could end up being overwritten by the allocator.

Prevent this by explicitly marking the memory as reserved it if exists
in the range used by bootmem allocator.
