Subject[PATCH 3.16 223/233] ARM: 8685/1: ensure memblock-limit is pmd-aligned
3.16.48-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Doug Berger <opendmb@gmail.com>

commit 9e25ebfe56ece7541cd10a20d715cbdd148a2e06 upstream.

The pmd containing memblock_limit is cleared by prepare_page_table()
which creates the opportunity for early_alloc() to allocate unmapped
memory if memblock_limit is not pmd aligned causing a boot-time hang.

Commit 965278dcb8ab ("ARM: 8356/1: mm: handle non-pmd-aligned end of RAM")
attempted to resolve this problem, but there is a path through the
adjust_lowmem_bounds() routine where if all memory regions start and
end on pmd-aligned addresses the memblock_limit will be set to
arm_lowmem_limit.

Since arm_lowmem_limit can be affected by the vmalloc early parameter,
the value of arm_lowmem_limit may not be pmd-aligned. This commit
corrects this oversight such that memblock_limit is always rounded
down to pmd-alignment.
