Subject[PATCH 2/2] FLATMEM relax requirement for memory to start at pfn 0
Date

From: Andy Whitcroft <apw@shadowen.org>

The FLATMEM memory model assumes that memory is in one contigious area
based at pfn 0. If we initialise node 0 to start at any other offset we
will incorrectly map pfn's to the wrong struct page *. The key to the
memory model is the contigious nature of the memory not the location of it.
Relax the requirement for the area to start at 0.
