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


From: Dan Williams <dan.j.williams@intel.com>

commit 23446cb66c073b827779e5eb3dec301623299b32 upstream.


  917db484dc6a ("x86/boot: Fix kdump, cleanup aborted E820_PRAM max_pfn manipulation")

... fixed up the broken manipulations of max_pfn in the presence of
E820_PRAM ranges.

However, it also broke the sanitize_e820_map() support for not merging
E820_PRAM ranges.

Re-introduce the enabling to keep resource boundaries between
consecutive defined ranges. Otherwise, for example, an environment that
boots with memmap=2G!8G,2G!10G will end up with a single 4G /dev/pmem0
device instead of a /dev/pmem0 and /dev/pmem1 device 2G in size.
