Subject[PATCH 3.19.y-ckt 27/47] x86/mm: Fix types used in pgprot cacheability flags translations
Date
3.19.8-ckt15 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

---8<------------------------------------------------------------

From: Jan Beulich <JBeulich@suse.com>

commit 3625c2c234ef66acf21a72d47a5ffa94f6c5ebf2 upstream.

For PAE kernels "unsigned long" is not suitable to hold page protection
flags, since _PAGE_NX doesn't fit there. This is the reason for quite a
few W+X pages getting reported as insecure during boot (observed namely
for the entire initrd range).

Fixes: 281d4078be ("x86: Make page cache mode a real type")
