[PATCH 3.18 29/47] MIPS: Align kernel load address to 64KB

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


From: Huacai Chen <chenhc@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit bec0de4cfad21bd284dbddee016ed1767a5d2823 upstream.

KEXEC needs the new kernel's load address to be aligned on a page
boundary (see sanity_check_segment_list()), but on MIPS the default
vmlinuz load address is only explicitly aligned to 16 bytes.

Since the largest PAGE_SIZE supported by MIPS kernels is 64KB, increase
the alignment calculated by calc_vmlinuz_load_addr to 64KB.
