Subject[PATCH 3/7] x86/mm/init: pass unconverted symbol addresses to free_init_pages()
From
Date

From: Dave Hansen <dave.hansen@linux.intel.com>

The x86 code has several places where it frees parts of kernel image:

1. Unused SMP alternative
2. __init code
3. The hole between text and rodata
4. The hole between rodata and data

We call free_init_pages() to do this. Strangely, we convert the
symbol addresses to kernel direct map addresses in some cases
(#3, #4) but not others (#1, #2).

The virt_to_page() and the other code in free_reserved_area() now
works fine for for symbol addresses on x86, so don't bother
converting the addresses to direct map addresses before freeing
them.
