There are two ways to create /sys/firmware/memmap/X sysfs:

  - firmware_map_add_early
    When the system starts, it is calledd from e820_reserve_resources()
  - firmware_map_add_hotplug
    When the memory is hot plugged, it is called from add_memory()

But these functions are called without unifying value of end argument as below:

  - end argument of firmware_map_add_early()   : start + size - 1
  - end argument of firmware_map_add_hogplug() : start + size

The patch unifies them to "start + size". Even if applying the patch,
/sys/firmware/memmap/X/end file content does not change.
