Hi Tyler,

Thank you for looking at this fix. The maximum addressable PA's can be
seen in this function: id_aa64mmfr0_parange_to_phys_shift(). For
example for PA shift 32, the linear map must be able to cover any
physical addresses from 0 to "1 << 32". Therefore, 0 to __pa(PAGE_END
- 1); must include 0 to "1<<32".

The randomization of the linear map tries to hide where exactly within
the linear map the [0 to max_phys] addresses are located by changing
PHYS_OFFSET (linear map space is usually much bigger than PA space).
Therefore, the beginning or end of a linear map can actually convert
to completely bagus high PA addresses, but this is normal.

Thank you,
Pasha
