3.5.7.13 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Jerry Hoemann <jerry.hoemann@hp.com>

Patch for 3.0-stable.  Function find_early_table_space removed upstream.

Fixes panic in alloc_low_page due to pgt_buf overflow during
init_memory_mapping.

find_early_table_space sizes pgt_buf based upon the size of the
memory being mapped, but it does not take into account the alignment
of the memory.  When the region being mapped spans a 512GB (PGDIR_SIZE)
alignment, a panic from alloc_low_pages occurs.

kernel_physical_mapping_init takes into account PGDIR_SIZE alignment.
This causes an extra call to alloc_low_page to be made.  This extra call
isn't accounted for by find_early_table_space and causes a kernel panic.

Change is to take into account PGDIR_SIZE alignment in find_early_table_space.
