Subject[PATCH 4.18 099/168] riscv: Do not overwrite initrd_start and initrd_end
Date
4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Guenter Roeck <linux@roeck-us.net>

[ Upstream commit e866d3e84eb7c9588afb77604d417e8cc49fe216 ]

setup_initrd() overwrites initrd_start and initrd_end if __initramfs_size
is larger than 0, which is always true even if there is no embedded
initramfs. This prevents booting qemu with "-initrd" parameter.
Overwriting initrd_start and initrd_end is not necessary since
__initramfs_start and __initramfs_size are used directly in
populate_rootfs() to load the built-in initramfs, so just drop
that code.
