SubjectRe: ce56a86e2a ("x86/mm: Limit mmap() of /dev/mem to valid physical addresses"): kernel BUG at arch/x86/mm/physaddr.c:79!
Yes, not much time left for 4.14, it might be reasonable to pull the
change out since it's causing problems. The 0day testing robot
failure is relatively simple (definitely aided by the reproduction
instructions), but I'm still pulling apart the qemu failure.

Another alternative that I considered when coding this up would be to
explicitly reject mmaps of pages that are greater than the bus width
of the system. It would let through a lot more mmaps of /dev/mem that
don't point to valid addresses, but prevents the page table corruption
and seems less likely to cause problems (diff shown below). I haven't
tested this on anything but a single 64-bit system.

Standby while I figure out what's going on with the qemu failures.
