Subject[PATCH 4.9 018/329] kasan: fix memory hotplug during boot
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: David Hildenbrand <david@redhat.com>

commit 3f1959721558a976aaf9c2024d5bc884e6411bf7 upstream.

Using module_init() is wrong. E.g. ACPI adds and onlines memory before
our memory notifier gets registered.

This makes sure that ACPI memory detected during boot up will not result
in a kernel crash.

Easily reproducible with QEMU, just specify a DIMM when starting up.
