mm/ia64: fix a memory block size bug
Jianguo Wu [Mon, 17 Sep 2012 21:08:56 +0000 (14:08 -0700)]
commit 05cf96398e1b6502f9e191291b715c7463c9d5dd upstream.

I found following definition in include/linux/memory.h, in my IA64
platform, SECTION_SIZE_BITS is equal to 32, and MIN_MEMORY_BLOCK_SIZE
will be 0.

  #define MIN_MEMORY_BLOCK_SIZE     (1 << SECTION_SIZE_BITS)

Because MIN_MEMORY_BLOCK_SIZE is int type and length of 32bits,
so MIN_MEMORY_BLOCK_SIZE(1 << 32) will will equal to 0.
Actually when SECTION_SIZE_BITS >= 31, MIN_MEMORY_BLOCK_SIZE will be wrong.
This will cause wrong system memory infomation in sysfs.
I think it should be:

  #define MIN_MEMORY_BLOCK_SIZE     (1UL << SECTION_SIZE_BITS)

And "echo offline > memory0/state" will cause following call trace:

  kernel BUG at mm/memory_hotplug.c:885!
