arm64: vmemmap: use virtual projection of linear region
Commit dd006da21646 ("arm64: mm: increase VA range of identity map") made some changes to the memory mapping code to allow physical memory to reside at an offset that exceeds the size of the virtual mapping. However, since the size of the vmemmap area is proportional to the size of the VA area, but it is populated relative to the physical space, we may end up with the struct page array being mapped outside of the vmemmap region. For instance, on my Seattle A0 box, I can see the following output in the dmesg log. vmemmap : 0xffffffbdc0000000 - 0xffffffbfc0000000 ( 8 GB maximum) 0xffffffbfc0000000 - 0xffffffbfd0000000 ( 256 MB actual) We can fix this by deciding that the vmemmap region is not a projection of the physical space, but of the virtual space above PAGE_OFFSET, i.e., the linear region. This way, we are guaranteed that the vmemmap region is of sufficient size, and we can even reduce the size by half.
