Subject[PATCH 4.9 60/63] genwqe: Fix size check
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Christian Borntraeger <>

commit fdd669684655c07dacbdb0d753fd13833de69a33 upstream.

Calling the test program genwqe_cksum with the default buffer size of
2MB triggers the following kernel warning on s390:

turns out the check in __genwqe_alloc_consistent uses "> MAX_ORDER"
while the mm code uses ">= MAX_ORDER". Fix genwqe.
