fremap: get rid of broken 'end' variable
Thomas Pollet points out that the 'end' variable is broken. It was computed based on start/size before they were page-aligned, and as such doesn't actually match any of the other actions we take. The overflow test on end was also redundant, since we had already tested it with the properly aligned version. So just get rid of it entirely. The one remaining use for that broken variable can just use 'start+size' like all the other cases already did. Reported-by: Thomas Pollet <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
