    ARM: 8901/1: add a criteria for pfn_valid of arm · 5b3efa4f

    pfn_valid can be wrong when parsing a invalid pfn whose phys address
    exceeds BITS_PER_LONG as the MSB will be trimed when shifted.
    The issue originally arise from bellowing call stack, which corresponding to
    an access of the /proc/kpageflags from userspace with a invalid pfn parameter
    and leads to kernel panic.
