Subject[PATCH 02/31] x86: Make sure free_init_pages() free pages in boundary
Date
When CONFIG_NO_BOOTMEM, it could use memory more effient, or more compact.

Example is:
Allocated new RAMDISK: 00ec2000 - 0248ce57
Move RAMDISK from 000000002ea04000 - 000000002ffcee56 to 00ec2000 - 0248ce56
The new RAMDISK's end is not page aligned.
Last page could use shared with other user.

When free_init_pages are called for initrd or .init, the page could be freed
could have chance to corrupt other data.

code segment in free_init_pages()
| for (; addr < end; addr += PAGE_SIZE) {
| ClearPageReserved(virt_to_page(addr));
| init_page_count(virt_to_page(addr));
| memset((void *)(addr & ~(PAGE_SIZE-1)),
| POISON_FREE_INITMEM, PAGE_SIZE);
| free_page(addr);
| totalram_pages++;
| }
last half page could be used as one whole free page.

Try to make the boundaries to be page aligned.

-v2: make the original initramdisk to be aligned, according to Johannes.
otherwise we have chance to lose one page.
we still need to keep initrd_end not aligned, otherwise it could
confuse decompresser.
-v3: change to WARN_ON instead according to Johannes.
-v4: use PAGE_ALIGN according to Johannes.
We may fix that MARCO name later to PAGE_ALIGN_UP, and PAGE_ALIGN_DOWN
Add comments about assuming ramdisk start is aligned
in relocate_initrd(), change to re get ramdisk_image instead of save it
to make diff smaller.
Add WARN for wrong range according Johannes.
-v6: remove one WARN
We need align begin in free_init_pages()
not copy more than ramdisk_size according to Johannes
