Subject[PATCH 4.3 044/125] x86/setup: Fix low identity map for >= 2GB kernel range
4.3-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Krzysztof Mazur <>

commit 68accac392d859d24adcf1be3a90e41f978bd54c upstream.

The commit f5f3497cad8c extended the low identity mapping. However, if
the kernel uses more than 2 GB (VMSPLIT_2G_OPT or VMSPLIT_1G memory
split), the normal memory mapping is overwritten by the low identity
mapping causing a crash. To avoid overwritting, limit the low identity
map to cover only memory before kernel range (PAGE_OFFSET).

Fixes: f5f3497cad8c "x86/setup: Extend low identity map to cover whole kernel range
