Subject: [PATCH 3.18 096/108] perf/core: Fix impossible ring-buffer sizes warning

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

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

From: Ingo Molnar <mingo@...nel.org>

commit 528871b456026e6127d95b1b2bd8e3a003dc1614 upstream.

The following commit:

  9dff0aa95a32 ("perf/core: Don't WARN() for impossible ring-buffer sizes")

results in perf recording failures with larger mmap areas:

  root@skl:/tmp# perf record -g -a
  failed to mmap with 12 (Cannot allocate memory)

The root cause is that the following condition is buggy:

	if (order_base_2(size) >= MAX_ORDER)
		goto fail;

The problem is that @size is in bytes and MAX_ORDER is in pages,
so the right test is:

	if (order_base_2(size) >= PAGE_SHIFT+MAX_ORDER)
		goto fail;

Fix it.
