Subject: book3s/ppc64: Increase the VA range
Upstream: no, adapts the below upstream commit for SLE15 SP1
Git-commit: 28fa7bd09013455b5ddc020dea4706278cda0d65

Fix for PPC64 kernel virtual address translation in Linux 4.17 and
later kernels with commit c2b4d8b7417a59b7f9a52d0d8402f5257cbbd398,
titled "powerpc/mm/hash64: Increase the VA range", in which the
maximum virtual address value has been increased to 4PB.  Without
the patch, the translation/access of high vmalloc space addresses
fails; for example, the "kmem -[sS]" option fails the translation
of per-cpu kmem_cache_cpu addresses located in vmalloc space, with
the error messages "kmem: invalid kernel virtual address: <address>
type: kmem_cache_cpu.freelist" and "kmem: invalid kernel virtual
address: <address>  type:", and the "vtop"
command shows the addresses as "(not mapped)". (

[note: apply on 4.12+ for SLE 15 SP1 - incompatible with SLE 15 SP0]
