ARC: fix page address calculation if PAGE_OFFSET != LINUX_LINK_BASE
commit 06f34e1c28f3608b0ce5b310e41102d3fe7b65a1 upstream. We used to calculate page address differently in 2 cases: 1. In virt_to_page(x) we do --->8--- mem_map + (x - CONFIG_LINUX_LINK_BASE) >> PAGE_SHIFT --->8--- 2. In in pte_page(x) we do --->8--- mem_map + (pte_val(x) - PAGE_OFFSET) >> PAGE_SHIFT --->8--- That leads to problems in case PAGE_OFFSET != CONFIG_LINUX_LINK_BASE - different pages will be selected depending on where and how we calculate page address. In particular in the STAR 9000853582 when gdb attempted to read memory of another process it got improper page in get_user_pages() because this is exactly one of the places where we search for a page by pte_page(). The fix is trivial - we need to calculate page address similarly in both cases.
