Thanks.

This is interesting.

So, the L1 page table entry is:
	PMD_TYPE_TABLE
	PMD_BIT4
	PMD_DOMAIN(0)
	Pointing at physical address 0x2f404800

L2 page table entry:
	PTE_EXT_XN
	PTE_BUFFERABLE
	PTE_CACHEABLE
	PTE_EXT_AP_UNO_SRW
	PTE_EXT_TEX(1)
	PTE_EXT_SHARED
	Physical address 0xefc1e000

That corresponds with L_PTE_MT_WRITEALLOC, so that's a memory type mapping
with cacheable, write-back, write-allocate attributes.

The thing which has me wondering though is the difference in physical
addresses - that looks /very/ wrong - unless you have close to 4GB of
memory.

Let's see whether we can get some debug from vmalloc to work out what's
going on - can you also apply the patch below.

Also, if you could include details about how much memory your platform
has, and where it's located, that would be useful - passing memblock=debug
should allow us to see what's going on at the memblock level.

Also, the full kernel boot log would be useful to see.

Thanks.

(Patch isn't tested.)
