Subject: [PATCH 4.14 069/183] libnvdimm, pfn: Fix over-trim in trim_pfn_device()

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


From: Wei Yang <>

commit f101ada7da6551127d192c2f1742c1e9e0f62799 upstream.

When trying to see whether current nd_region intersects with others,
trim_pfn_device() has already calculated the *size* to be expanded to

Do not double append 'adjust' to 'size' when calculating whether the end
of a region collides with the next pmem region.

Fixes: ae86cbfef381 "libnvdimm, pfn: Pad pfn namespaces relative to other regions"
