Sorry for the typo, I was thinking about to write TASK_SIZE_MAX.

At least there is a logic error i think, after apply the patch
"s390/mm: fix BUG_ON in crst_table_upgrade",
it makes no sense to compare "if (end >= TASK_SIZE_MAX) return
-ENOMEM" in crst_table_upgrade() function.

isn't it?

Thanks for reviewing quick.
