Subject[PATCH] x86-64: fix memset() to support sizes of 4Gb and above
While currently there doesn't appear to be any reachable in-tree case
where such large memory blocks may be passed to memset()
(alloc_bootmem() being the primary non-reachable one, as it gets called
with suitably large sizes in FLATMEM configurations), we have recently
hit the problem a second time in our Xen kernels. Rather than working
around it a second time, prevent others from falling into the same trap
by fixing this long standing limitation.
