Subject: [PATCH v2 0/2] x86/mm/KASLR: Fix the wrong size of memory sections

v1->v2:
  Rewrite log of the two patches. No functionality change.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
v1 background:
The fixes for these two bugs were carried in the earlier patchset, patch
4/6 and patch 5/6:

[PATCH v4 0/6] Several patches to fix code bugs, improve documents and clean up
http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20190314094645.4883-1-bhe@redhat.com

Later, Thomas suggested posting bug fixing patches separately from those
clean up patches. So send both of them in a separate patchset.

For another bug fix patch 6/6, it happened on SGI UV system. Mike and
Frank have sent a machine with cards to our lab and loaned to me, I am
still debugging and discussing with Mike about the verification.

Baoquan He (2):
  x86/mm/KASLR: Fix the size of the direct mapping section
  x86/mm/KASLR: Fix the size of vmemmap section
