Hi,

Looks like this patch causes a boot regression at least for Cortex-A15.
That's commit 990e6d0e1de8 ("arm: extend pfn_valid to take into accound
freed memory map alignment") in Linux next.

Most of the time I see the following on beagle-x15 right after init starts:

Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x0000000b

Sometimes the system boots to console, but maybe only about 20% of the
time. Reverting 990e6d0e1de8 makes Linux next boot again for me.

Regards,

Tony
