Subject[PATCH] x86/boot/64: Fix crash if kernel images crosses page table boundary
Date
Kernel that boots in 5-level paging mode crashes in small percentage of
cases if KASLR is enabled.

This issue was tracked down to the case when the kernel image unpack in
the way it crosses 1G boundary. The crash was due to overrun of PMD page
table in __startup_64() and corruption of P4D page table allocated next
to it.

The issue is not visible with 4-level paging as we don't use the P4D
page table.

The root cause is that the handling of page table wraparound was lost
when part of startup_64() was rewritten in C.

Restore the handling. It also fixes the issue when the kernel image put
across 512G and, for 5-level paging, 64T boundary.
