x86: Do not try to sync identity map for non-mapped pages
kernel_map_sync_memtype() is called from a variety of contexts. The pat.c code that calls it seems to ensure that it is not called for non-ram areas by checking via pat_pagerange_is_ram(). It is important that it only be called on the actual identity map because there *IS* no map to sync for highmem pages, or for memory holes. The ioremap.c uses are not as careful as those from pat.c, and call kernel_map_sync_memtype() on PCI space which is in the middle of the kernel identity map _range_, but is not actually mapped. This patch adds a check to kernel_map_sync_memtype() which probably duplicates some of the checks already in pat.c. But, it is necessary for the ioremap.c uses and shouldn't hurt other callers. I have reproduced this bug and this patch fixes it for me and the original bug reporter: https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/2/5/396 Signed-off-by: Dave Hansen <email@example.com> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20130307163151.D9B58C4E@kernel.stglabs.ibm.com Signed-off-by: Dave Hansen <firstname.lastname@example.org> Tested-by: Tetsuo Handa <email@example.com> Signed-off-by: H.
