[PATCH 15/33] x86_64: Fix kernel direct mapping size check

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Instead of using physical addresse of _end which has nothing to
do with knowing if the kernel fits within it's reserved
virtual addresses, verify the virtual address of _end fits
within in the kernel virtual address mapping.
