Subject: [PATCH] mm: Avoid overlap the fixmap area on i386

From: Minfei Huang <mnfhuang@...il.com>

It is a problem when configuring high memory off where the vmalloc
reserve area could end up overlapping the early_ioremap fixmap
area on i386.

The ordering of the VMALLOC_RESERVE space is:
FIXADDR_TOP
                       fixed_addresses
FIXADDR_START
                       early_ioremap fixed addresses
FIXADDR_BOOT_START
                       Persistent kmap area
PKMAP_BASE
VMALLOC_END
                       Vmalloc area
VMALLOC_START
high_memory

The available address we can use is lower than FIXADDR_BOOT_START. So
We will set the kmap boundary below the FIXADDR_BOOT_START, if configure
the high memory.

If we configure the high memory, the vmalloc reserve area should end
up to PKMAP_BASE, otherwise should end up to FIXADDR_BOOT_START.
