[Xen-devel] [PATCH v2] Call xen_cleanhighmap() with 4MB aligned for page tables mapping

When bootup a PVM guest with large memory(Ex.240GB), XEN provided initial
mapping overlaps with kernel module virtual space. When mapping in this space
is cleared by xen_cleanhighmap(), in certain case there could be an 2MB mapping
left. This is due to XEN initialize 4MB aligned mapping but xen_cleanhighmap()
finish at 2MB boundary.

When module loading is just on top of the 2MB space, got below warning:

WARNING: at mm/vmalloc.c:106 vmap_pte_range+0x14e/0x190()

Then the mapping of 2MB is cleared, finally oops when the page in that space is

Call xen_cleanhighmap() with 4MB aligned for page tables mapping to fix it.
The unnecessory call of xen_cleanhighmap() in DEBUG mode is also removed.

-v2: add comment about XEN alignment from Juergen.
