Subject[patch 049/108] x86: handle initrd that extends into unusable memory
2.6.30-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Yinghai Lu <yinghai@kernel.org>

commit 8c5dd8f43367f4f266dd616f11658005bc2d20ef upstream.

On a system where system memory (according e820) is not covered by
mtrr, mtrr_trim_memory converts a portion of memory to reserved, but
bootloader has already put the initrd in that range.

Thus, we need to have 64bit to use relocate_initrd too.

[ Impact: fix using initrd when mtrr_trim_memory happen ]
