Subject[PATCH v3 1/3] x86/mm: disable ioremap free page handling on x86-PAE
Date
ioremap() supports pmd mappings on x86-PAE.  However, kernel's pmd
tables are not shared among processes on x86-PAE. Therefore, any
update to sync'd pmd entries need re-syncing. Freeing a pte page
also leads to a vmalloc fault and hits the BUG_ON in vmalloc_sync_one().

Disable free page handling on x86-PAE. pud_free_pmd_page() and
pmd_free_pte_page() simply return 0 if a given pud/pmd entry is present.
This assures that ioremap() does not update sync'd pmd entries at the
cost of falling back to pte mappings.

Fixes: 28ee90fe6048 ("x86/mm: implement free pmd/pte page interfaces")
