Subject: Re: [PATCH v4 1/4] x86/mm: Adapt MODULES_END based on Fixmap section size

This patch aligns MODULES_END to the beginning of the Fixmap section.
It optimizes the space available for both sections. The address is
pre-computed based on the number of pages required by the Fixmap
section.

It will allow GDT remapping in the Fixmap section. The current
MODULES_END static address does not provide enough space for the kernel
to support a large number of processors.

Signed-off-by: Thomas Garnier <thgarnie@...gle.com>

Based on next-20170213
Fixed fixmap dependencies on random configurations.

 The mappings are not part of any other kernel PGD and are only available

+The module mapping space size changes based on the CONFIG requirements for the
+following fixmap section.

 Note that if CONFIG_RANDOMIZE_MEMORY is enabled, the direct mapping of all
 physical memory, vmalloc/ioremap space and virtual memory map are randomized.
 Their order is preserved but their base will be offset early at boot time.
