Subject: [PATCH] x86/sysfb: Fix check for bad VRAM size
Date: Tue,  7 Jan 2020 18:04:10 -0500
Message-ID: <20200107230410.2291947-1-nivedita@alum.mit.edu> (raw)

When checking whether the reported lfb_size makes sense, we PAGE_ALIGN
height * stride before seeing whether it exceeds the reported size.

This doesn't work if height * stride is not an exact number of pages.
For example, as reported in kernel bugzilla linked, an 800x600x32 EFI
framebuffer gets skipped because of this.

Move the PAGE_ALIGN to after the check vs size.
