memory hotplug: fix a bug on /dev/mem for 64-bit kernels
Shaohui Zheng [Tue, 2 Feb 2010 21:44:16 +0000 (13:44 -0800)]
Newly added memory can not be accessed via /dev/mem, because we do not
update the variables high_memory, max_pfn and max_low_pfn.

Add a function update_end_of_memory_vars() to update these variables for
64-bit kernels.
