ARM: 8685/1: ensure memblock-limit is pmd-aligned
commit 9e25ebfe56ece7541cd10a20d715cbdd148a2e06 upstream. The pmd containing memblock_limit is cleared by prepare_page_table() which creates the opportunity for early_alloc() to allocate unmapped memory if memblock_limit is not pmd aligned causing a boot-time hang. Commit 965278dcb8ab ("ARM: 8356/1: mm: handle non-pmd-aligned end of RAM") attempted to resolve this problem, but there is a path through the adjust_lowmem_bounds() routine where if all memory regions start and end on pmd-aligned addresses the memblock_limit will be set to arm_lowmem_limit. Since arm_lowmem_limit can be affected by the vmalloc early parameter, the value of arm_lowmem_limit may not be pmd-aligned. This commit corrects this oversight such that memblock_limit is always rounded down to pmd-alignment.
