Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.9 001/190] powerpc/nohash: Fix use of mmu_has_feature() in setup_initial_memory_limit()
From: Michael Ellerman <>

[ Upstream commit 4868e3508d1934d28961f940ed6b9f1e347ab52c ]

setup_initial_memory_limit() is called from early_init_devtree(), which
runs prior to feature patching. If the kernel is built with CONFIG_JUMP_LABEL=y
and CONFIG_JUMP_LABEL_FEATURE_CHECKS=y then we will potentially get the
wrong value.

If we also have CONFIG_JUMP_LABEL_FEATURE_CHECK_DEBUG=y we get a warning
and backtrace:

Warning! mmu_has_feature() used prior to jump label init!
CPU: 0 PID: 0 Comm: swapper Not tainted 4.11.0-rc4-gccN-next-20170331-g6af2434 #1

Fix it by using early_mmu_has_feature().
