Subject[PATCH 4.13 17/27] mm/sparse.c: fix typo in online_mem_sections
4.13-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Michal Hocko <>

commit b4ccec41af82b5a5518c6534444412961894f07c upstream.

online_mem_sections() accidentally marks online only the first section
in the given range. This is a typo which hasn't been noticed because I
haven't tested large 2GB blocks previously. All users of
pfn_to_online_page would get confused on the the rest of the pfn range
in the block.

All we need to fix this is to use iterator (pfn) rather than start_pfn.
