memblock: don't adjust size in memblock_find_base()
While applying patch to use memblock to find aperture for 64bit x86. Ingo found system with 1g + force_iommu > No AGP bridge found > Node 0: aperture @ 38000000 size 32 MB > Aperture pointing to e820 RAM. Ignoring. > Your BIOS doesn't leave a aperture memory hole > Please enable the IOMMU option in the BIOS setup > This costs you 64 MB of RAM > Cannot allocate aperture memory hole (0,65536K) the corresponding code: addr = memblock_find_in_range(0, 1ULL<<32, aper_size, 512ULL<<20); if (addr == MEMBLOCK_ERROR || addr + aper_size > 0xffffffff) { printk(KERN_ERR "Cannot allocate aperture memory hole (%lx,%uK)\n", addr, aper_size>>10); return 0; } memblock_x86_reserve_range(addr, addr + aper_size, "aperture64") fails because memblock core code align the size with 512M. That could make size way too big. So don't align the size in that case. actually __memblock_alloc_base, the another caller already align that before calling that function. BTW. x86 does not use __memblock_alloc_base... Signed-off-by: Yinghai Lu <yinghai@kernel.org> Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Cc: David Miller <davem@davemloft.net> Cc: "H.
