[PATCH 5/12] i386 setup.c: Reserve kernel memory starting from _text

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


Currently when we are reserving the memory the kernel text
resides in we start at __PHYSICAL_START which happens to be
correct but not very obvious.  In addition when we start relocating
the kernel __PHYSICAL_START is the wrong value, as it is an
absolute symbol that does not get relocated.

By starting the reservation at __pa_symbol(_text)
the code is clearer and will be correct when relocated.
