x86/mm: Limit mmap() of /dev/mem to valid physical addresses
Currently, it is possible to mmap() any offset from /dev/mem. If a program mmaps() /dev/mem offsets outside of the addressable limits of a system, the page table can be corrupted by setting reserved bits. For example if you mmap() offset 0x0001000000000000 of /dev/mem on an x86_64 system with a 48-bit bus, the page fault handler will be called with error_code set to RSVD. The kernel then crashes with a page table corruption error. This change prevents this page table corruption on x86 by refusing to mmap offsets higher than the highest valid address in the system.
