ARM: 7882/1: mm: fix __phys_to_virt to work with 64 bit phys_addr_t in BE case
Make sure that inline assembler that expects 'r' operand receives 32 bit value. Before this fix in case of CONFIG_ARCH_PHYS_ADDR_T_64BIT and CONFIG_ARM_PATCH_PHYS_VIRT __phys_to_virt function passed 64 bit value to __pv_stub inline assembler where 'r' operand is expected. Compiler behavior in such case is not well specified. It worked in little endian case, but in big endian case incorrect code was generated, where compiler confused which part of 64 bit value it needed to modify. For example BE snippet looked like this: N:0x80904E08 : MOV r2,#0 N:0x80904E0C : SUB r2,r2,#0x81000000 when LE similar code looked like this N:0x808FCE2C : MOV r2,r0 N:0x808FCE30 : SUB r2,r2,#0xc0, 8 ; #0xc0000000 Note 'r0' register is va that have to be translated into phys To avoid this situation use explicit cast to 'unsigned long', which explicitly discard upper part of phys address and convert value to 32 bit. Also add comment so such cast will not be removed in the future.
