Subject[PATCH 3.10 023/123] x86, pageattr: Prevent overflow in slow_virt_to_phys() for X86_PAE
Date
3.10-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Dexuan Cui <decui@microsoft.com>

commit d1cd1210834649ce1ca6bafe5ac25d2f40331343 upstream.

pte_pfn() returns a PFN of long (32 bits in 32-PAE), so "long <<
PAGE_SHIFT" will overflow for PFNs above 4GB.

Due to this issue, some Linux 32-PAE distros, running as guests on Hyper-V,
with 5GB memory assigned, can't load the netvsc driver successfully and
hence the synthetic network device can't work (we can use the kernel parameter
mem=3000M to work around the issue).

Cast pte_pfn() to phys_addr_t before shifting.

Fixes: "commit d76565344512: x86, mm: Create slow_virt_to_phys()"
