Subject: [PATCH 3.2 031/185] PM / hibernate: Avoid overflow in
 hibernate_preallocate_memory()

3.2.54-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Aaron Lu <aaron.lu@...el.com>

commit fd432b9f8c7c88428a4635b9f5a9c6e174df6e36 upstream.

When system has a lot of highmem (e.g. 16GiB using a 32 bits kernel),
the code to calculate how much memory we need to preallocate in
normal zone may cause overflow. As Leon has analysed:

 It looks that during computing 'alloc' variable there is overflow:
 alloc = (3943404 - 1970542) - 1978280 = -5418 (signed)
 And this function goes to err_out.

Fix this by avoiding that overflow.
