Subject: [PATCH] x86/pat: Pass valid address to sanitize_phys()

The end address passed to memtype_reserve() is handed directly to
sanitize_phys().  However, end is exclusive and sanitize_phys() expects
an inclusive address.  If end falls at the end of the physical address
space, sanitize_phys() will return 0.  This can result in drivers
failing to load, and the following warning:

 WARNING: CPU: 26 PID: 749 at arch/x86/mm/pat.c:354 reserve_memtype+0x262/0x450
 reserve_memtype failed: [mem 0x3ffffff00000-0xffffffffffffffff], req uncached-minus

Fix this by passing the inclusive end address to sanitize_phys().
