Subject[PATCH 1/3] x86/kexec: Correct KEXEC_BACKUP_SRC_END off-by-one error
From
Date
From: Bjorn Helgaas <bhelgaas@google.com>

The only use of KEXEC_BACKUP_SRC_END is as an argument to
walk_system_ram_res():

int crash_load_segments(struct kimage *image)
{
...
walk_system_ram_res(KEXEC_BACKUP_SRC_START, KEXEC_BACKUP_SRC_END,
image, determine_backup_region);

walk_system_ram_res() expects "start, end" arguments that are inclusive,
i.e., the range to be walked includes both the start and end addresses.

KEXEC_BACKUP_SRC_END was previously defined as (640 * 1024UL), which is the
first address *past* the desired 0-640KB range.

Define KEXEC_BACKUP_SRC_END as (640 * 1024UL - 1) so the KEXEC_BACKUP_SRC
region is [0-0x9ffff], not [0-0xa0000].

Fixes: dd5f726076cc ("kexec: support for kexec on panic using new system call")
