Thanks for your help. I have done some code inspection and have

This has caused multiple problems in the past. I wrote a patch to
correct this problem, but it looks like it was never applied.
I just sent the patch to you guys as a separate e-mail.

So could you please help to prepare a formal patch for this bug and send
it to Andrew Morton for v3.10-rc1? Otherwise I could help to it too.

So on 64bits MIPS platforms, __va(__pa(x)) may not equal to x, that may cause

This test could help to identify whether this panic is caused by
memset((void *)pos, poison, PAGE_SIZE);
in function free_reserved_area().
Hello, as you said i changed "free_initmem_default(POISON_FREE_INITMEM);" to
"free_initmem_default(0);". Panic still occurred.
Actually, i put the some debug messages. and i confirmed panic occurs in
