[dm-devel] [PATCH] block: set the bounce_pfn to the actual DMA limit rather than to max memory



The bounce_pfn of the request queue in 64 bit systems is set to the
current max_low_pfn. Adding more memory later makes this incorrect.
Memory allocated beyond this boot time max_low_pfn appear to require
bounce buffers (bounce buffers are actually not allocated but used in
calculating segments that may result in "over max segments limit"
errors).
