Hi Baoquan,

Thanks for your quick reply and PATCH.
I think it can work well after reviewing the code. But I think the new
variable 'real_startpfn' is unnecessary. How about this:

diff --git a/mm/page_alloc.c b/mm/page_alloc.c
index 6d00f746c2fd..0fc9c4283947 100644
--- a/mm/page_alloc.c

                                continue;

+                       if (pfn_to_nid(PFN_UP(_etext)) == i)
+                               usable_startpfn = max(usable_startpfn,

                        if (start_pfn < usable_startpfn) {
                                unsigned long kernel_pages;

I think the logic of these two method are the same, and this method
change less code. If I am wrong, please let me know.

Thanks,
