Subject[patch 25/54] x86_64: allocate sparsemem memmap above 4G
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
---------------------
From: Zou Nan hai <nanhai.zou@intel.com>

On systems with huge amount of physical memory, VFS cache and memory memmap
may eat all available system memory under 4G, then the system may fail to
allocate swiotlb bounce buffer.

There was a fix for this issue in arch/x86_64/mm/numa.c, but that fix dose
not cover sparsemem model.

This patch add fix to sparsemem model by first try to allocate memmap above
4G.
