Subject[PATCH] ARM: zImage: Fix stack overflow in merge_fdt_bootargs()
Date
This function is called very early on from head.S and currently sets up a
stack frame of more than 1024 bytes:

atags_to_fdt.c: In function ‘merge_fdt_bootargs’:
atags_to_fdt.c:98:1: warning: the frame size of 1032 bytes is larger than 1024 bytes [-Wframe-larger-than=]

This causes a crash and failure to boot with some combinations of kernel
version, gcc version and dtb, such as kernel version 4.1-rc1 of 4.1.0,
gcc version 5.4.1 20161019 (Debian 5.4.1-3) and tegra20-trimslice.dtb.

With this patch, merge_fdt_bootargs() is rewritten to not use a large buffer,
thereby solving the problem of the stack overflow.

As a side effect of this rewrite, you no longer get a space added in front
of the kernel command line when no bootargs property was found in the fdt.

Fixes: d0f34a11ddab ("ARM: 7437/1: zImage: Allow DTB command line concatenation with ATAG_CMDLINE")
---

I have tested that this works properly when
a) only the FDT bootargs are provided,
b) only the ATAG command line is provided, and
c) both the FDT bootargs and the ATAG command line are provided.
