I wanted to add that we started seeing this back in 3.0. I didn't go
back any farther, but know it was not occurring in 2.6.38. The issue in
3.0 appeared to be that we shift left k8_dbam_to_chip_select() and there
was also another shift in amd64_csrow_nr_pages(). It looks like that
second shift has been replaced by a more recent patch, which actually
checks to see if the csrow is enabled and then counts nr_pages again
adding that to the first calculation, still resulting in the size being
double.
