mm: nobootmem: fix sign extend problem in __free_pages_memory()
Russ Anderson [Thu, 10 May 2012 20:01:46 +0000 (13:01 -0700)]
Systems with 8 TBytes of memory or greater can hit a problem where only
the the first 8 TB of memory shows up.  This is due to "int i" being
smaller than "unsigned long start_aligned", causing the high bits to be
dropped.

The fix is to change `i' to unsigned long to match start_aligned
and end_aligned.

Thanks to Jack Steiner for assistance tracking this down.
