Sorry, I missed this one.  It looks like the patch that adds mem= and 
fixes the bug has already been merged, so I'm not really quite sure what 
the right thing to do is here: we don't really want the mem= code on 
stable, but we do want the fix.  I went ahead and did

    Merge remote-tracking branch 'riscv/riscv-fix-32bit' into fixes

    This contains a single fix for 32-bit boot.  It happens this was already
    fixed by c9811e379b21 ("riscv: Add mem kernel parameter support"), but
    the bug existed before that feature addition so I've applied the patch
    earlier and then merged it in (which results in a conflict, which is
    fixed via not changing the resulting tree).

    * riscv/riscv-fix-32bit:
      riscv: Fix 32-bit RISC-V boot failure

as that"s the best I could come up with -- then the fix will land on 
master, which should cause it to get pulled onto stable.

Greg: is there a better way to make something like this get to stable?
