Subject[PATCH 5.18 82/88] ARM: 9216/1: Fix MAX_DMA_ADDRESS overflow
From: Florian Fainelli <>

[ Upstream commit fb0fd3469ead5b937293c213daa1f589b4b7ce46 ]

Commit 26f09e9b3a06 ("mm/memblock: add memblock memory allocation apis")
added a check to determine whether arm_dma_zone_size is exceeding the
amount of kernel virtual address space available between the upper 4GB
virtual address limit and PAGE_OFFSET in order to provide a suitable
definition of MAX_DMA_ADDRESS that should fit within the 32-bit virtual
address space. The quantity used for comparison was off by a missing
trailing 0, leading to MAX_DMA_ADDRESS to be overflowing a 32-bit

This was caught thanks to CONFIG_DEBUG_VIRTUAL on the bcm2711 platform
where we define a dma_zone_size of 1GB and we have a PAGE_OFFSET value
of 0xc000_0000 (CONFIG_VMSPLIT_3G) leading to MAX_DMA_ADDRESS being
0x1_0000_0000 which overflows the unsigned long type used throughout
__pa() and then __virt_addr_valid(). Because the virtual address passed
to __virt_addr_valid() would now be 0, the function would loudly warn
and flood the kernel log, thus making the platform unable to boot
