    x86/mm: Fix overlap of i386 CPU_ENTRY_AREA with FIX_BTMAP

is breaking the suspend on x86_i386.

The device enters sleep state OK, but during wakeup the machine is rebooted.

The removing of the above patch is restoring the suspend functionality.

Kernel config attached.

The same problem is seen on 4.16-rc1
Comment 2 Woody Suwalski 2018-02-18 15:44:41 UTC
After more investigation I have isolated the issue to be happening only on non-pae builds.
Kernels configured to use pae can wake from suspend2ram without problems.

The way to trigger the problem is to switch the config from CONFIG_X86_PAE to CONFIG_HIGHMEM4G (and "automatic" dependencies, like state of PHYS_ADDR_T_64BIT, PGTABLE_LEVELS..).

Tested with and without PAE on 4.15.4 and 4.16-rc1

Woddy, can you close this please, as this afaics was fixed by https://git.kernel.org/torvalds/c/945fd17ab6bab8a4d05da6c3170519fbcfe62ddb Or did I  get something wrong?
Comment 8 Woody Suwalski 2018-03-05 16:20:42 UTC
The issue is fixed now in 4.16-rc4 by Thomas Gleixner's patch.
Comment 9 Woody Suwalski 2018-03-05 16:22:02 UTC
Marking resolved trusting that the patch will appear in the stable 4.15 and 4.14 releases.
