Subject: [PATCH 3.12 004/181] powerpc: Fix Oops in rtas_stop_self()

From: Li Zhong <zhong@...ux.vnet.ibm.com>

3.12-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

===============

commit 4fb8d027dca0236c811272d342cf185569d91311 upstream.

commit 41dd03a9 may cause Oops in rtas_stop_self().

The reason is that the rtas_args was moved into stack space. For a box
with more that 4GB RAM, the stack could easily be outside 32bit range,
but RTAS is 32bit.

So the patch moves rtas_args away from stack by adding static before
it.
