From: Alastair D'Silva <alastair@d-silva.org>

When calling flush_icache_range with a size >4GB, we were masking
off the upper 32 bits, so we would incorrectly flush a range smaller
than intended.

This patch replaces the 32 bit shifts with 64 bit ones, so that
the full size is accounted for.

Heads-up for backporters: the old version of flush_dcache_range is
subject to a similar bug (this has since been replaced with a C
implementation).

Can you submit a patch to stable, explaining this ?

This patch was sent to stable too - or did you mean send another patch
for the stable asm version of flush_dcache_range?

Yes I meant a patch for your 'heads-up', in extenso a patch for fixing 
flush_dcache_range().

And for this patch, you put stable is copy of the mail, but for it to be 
taken into account it needs to also explicitely include a Cc: 
stable@vger.kernel.org in the commit message. I guess Michael will add 
it for this time.
