Subject[PATCH 3.2 034/106] powerpc/mm: Fix virt_addr_valid() etc. on 64-bit hash
3.2.93-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Michael Ellerman <mpe@ellerman.id.au>

commit e41e53cd4fe331d0d1f06f8e4ed7e2cc63ee2c34 upstream.

virt_addr_valid() is supposed to tell you if it's OK to call virt_to_page() on
an address. What this means in practice is that it should only return true for
addresses in the linear mapping which are backed by a valid PFN.

We are failing to properly check that the address is in the linear mapping,
because virt_to_pfn() will return a valid looking PFN for more or less any
address. That bug is actually caused by __pa(), used in virt_to_pfn().

eg: __pa(0xc000000000010000) = 0x10000 # Good
__pa(0xd000000000010000) = 0x10000 # Bad!
__pa(0x0000000000010000) = 0x10000 # Bad!

This started happening after commit bdbc29c19b26 ("powerpc: Work around gcc
miscompilation of __pa() on 64-bit") (Aug 2013), where we changed the definition
of __pa() to work around a GCC bug. Prior to that we subtracted PAGE_OFFSET from
the value passed to __pa(), meaning __pa() of a 0xd or 0x0 address would give
you something bogus back.

Until we can verify if that GCC bug is no longer an issue, or come up with
another solution, this commit does the minimal fix to make virt_addr_valid()
work, by explicitly checking that the address is in the linear mapping region.
