drivers/firmware/memmap.c: don't allocate firmware_map_entry of same memory range



When limiting memory by mem= and ACPI DSDT table has PNP0C80,
firmware_map_entrys of same memory range are allocated and memmap X
sysfses which have same memory range are created as follows:

  # cat /sys/firmware/memmap/0/*
  0x407ffffffff
  0x40000000000
  System RAM
  # cat /sys/firmware/memmap/33/*
  0x407ffffffff
  0x40000000000
  System RAM
  # cat /sys/firmware/memmap/35/*
  0x407ffffffff
  0x40000000000
  System RAM

In this case, when hot-removing memory, kernel panic occurs, showing
following call trace:

  BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at 00000001003e000b
  IP: sysfs_open_file+0x46/0x2b0

The problem occurs as follows:

When calling e820_reserve_resources(), firmware_map_entrys of all e820
memory map are allocated.  And all firmware_map_entrys is added
map_entries list as follows:

map_entries
 -> +--- entry A --------+ -> ...
    | start 0x407ffffffff|
    | end   0x40000000000|
    | type  System RAM   |
    +--------------------+

After that, if ACPI DSDT table has PNP0C80 and the memory range is
limited by mem=, the PNP0C80 is hot-added.  Then firmware_map_entry of
PNP0C80 is allocated and added map_entries list as follows:

map_entries
 -> +--- entry A --------+ -> ... -> +--- entry B --------+
    | start 0x407ffffffff|           | start 0x407ffffffff|
    | end   0x40000000000|           | end   0x40000000000|
    | type  System RAM   |           | type  System RAM   |
    +--------------------+           +--------------------+

Then memmap 0 sysfs for entry B is created.

After that, firmware_memmap_init() creates memmap sysfses of all
firmware_map_entrys in map_entries list.  As a result, memmap 33 sysfs
for entry A and memmap 35 sysfs for entry B are created.  But kobject of
entry B has been used by memmap 0 sysfs.  So when creating memmap 35
sysfs, the kobject is broken.

If hot-removing memory, memmap 0 sysfs is destroyed and kobject of
memmap 0 sysfs is freed.  But the kobject can be accessed via memmap 35
sysfs.  So when open memmap 35 sysfs, kernel panic occurs.

This patch checks whether there is firmware_map_entry of same memory
range in map_entries list and don't allocate firmware_map_entry of same
memroy range.
