[PATCH 4.9 153/171] Revert "x86/mm: Expand static page table for fixmap space"




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

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

This reverts commit 3a8304b7ad2e291777e8499e39390145d932a2fd, which was
upstream commit 05ab1d8a4b36ee912b7087c6da127439ed0a903e.

Ben Hutchings writes:

This backport is incorrect.  The part that updated __startup_64() in
arch/x86/kernel/head64.c was dropped, presumably because that function
doesn't exist in 4.9.  However that seems to be an essential of the
fix.  In 4.9 the startup_64 routine in arch/x86/kernel/head_64.S would
need to be changed instead.

I also found that this introduces new boot-time warnings on some
systems if CONFIG_DEBUG_WX is enabled.

So, unless someone provides fixes for those issues, I think this should
be reverted for the 4.9 branch.
