Subject[PATCH] [162/275] x86: Use u32 instead of long to set reset vector back to 0
Date
2.6.35-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Don Zickus <dzickus@redhat.com>

commit 299c56966a72b9109d47c71a6db52097098703dd upstream.

A customer of ours, complained that when setting the reset
vector back to 0, it trashed other data and hung their box.
They noticed when only 4 bytes were set to 0 instead of 8,
everything worked correctly.

Mathew pointed out:

|
| We're supposed to be resetting trampoline_phys_low and
| trampoline_phys_high here, which are two 16-bit values.
| Writing 64 bits is definitely going to overwrite space
| that we're not supposed to be touching.
|

So limit the area modified to u32.
