Subject[ 043/128] mm: use aligned zone start for pfn_to_bitidx calculation
3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Laura Abbott <lauraa@codeaurora.org>

commit c060f943d0929f3e429c5d9522290584f6281d6e upstream.

The current calculation in pfn_to_bitidx assumes that (pfn -
zone->zone_start_pfn) >> pageblock_order will return the same bit for
all pfn in a pageblock. If zone_start_pfn is not aligned to
pageblock_nr_pages, this may not always be correct.

Consider the following with pageblock order = 10, zone start 2MB:

pfn | pfn - zone start | (pfn - zone start) >> page block order
----------------------------------------------------------------
0x26000 | 0x25e00 | 0x97
0x26100 | 0x25f00 | 0x97
0x26200 | 0x26000 | 0x98
0x26300 | 0x26100 | 0x98

This means that calling {get,set}_pageblock_migratetype on a single page
will not set the migratetype for the full block. Fix this by rounding
down zone_start_pfn when doing the bitidx calculation.

For our use case, the effects of this bug were mostly tied to the fact
that CMA allocations would either take a long time or fail to happen.
Depending on the driver using CMA, this could result in anything from
visual glitches to application failures.
