Memtest failed. Error: -22

I just used memtest on a couple of PPC board (freescale mpc8544 and
P1014) and it failed with:

barebox>/ memtest
Memtest failed. Error: -22

This error happens when the space between two regions is smaller than a
page size:
 0x0bf75000 - 0x0ff74fff (size 0x04000000) malloc space
 0x0ff756e8 - 0x0ff7d6e7 (size 0x00008000) stack

In this case, the size - when doing the calculation "size =
PAGE_ALIGN_DOWN(end - start + 1);" - is zero.

The function call ret = alloc_memtest_region(list, start, size);
then fails.

I will not be able to offer a patch until second week of June as I am away.
