This is completely unreadable and aside of that it is wrong. You cannot do
an overlap check with the following constraints:

range1_end = range1_start + size;
range2_end = range2_start + size;

See the definition of BIOS_END. It's 0x100000, i.e. 1MB, so the following
overlap check will give you the false result:

overlap(256, 258, 0x000a0000 >> 12, 0x0010000 >> 12)

because

0x0010000 >> 12 = 256

ergo will overlap return true. All of your overlap checks are broken.

Oh well.

Thanks,

tglx
