Subject[ 186/187] memblock: free allocated memblock_reserved_regions later
Date
From: Greg KH <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>

3.4-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Yinghai Lu <yinghai@kernel.org>

commit 29f6738609e40227dabcc63bfb3b84b3726a75bd upstream.

memblock_free_reserved_regions() calls memblock_free(), but
memblock_free() would double reserved.regions too, so we could free the
old range for reserved.regions.

Also tj said there is another bug which could be related to this.

| I don't think we're saving any noticeable
| amount by doing this "free - give it to page allocator - reserve
| again" dancing. We should just allocate regions aligned to page
| boundaries and free them later when memblock is no longer in use.

in that case, when DEBUG_PAGEALLOC, will get panic:

memblock_free: [0x0000102febc080-0x0000102febf080] memblock_free_reserved_regions+0x37/0x39

RIP: 0010:[<ffffffff836a5774>] [<ffffffff836a5774>] __next_free_mem_range+0x9b/0x155

See the discussion at https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/6/13/469

So try to allocate with PAGE_SIZE alignment and free it later.
