[RFC PATCH v2 6/6] of: reserved_mem: Make MAX_RESERVED_REGIONS a config option

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Make the value of MAX_RESERVED_REGIONS a config option which can be
modified based on user requirements.
The reserved_mem_array is required during device bootup to store the
information of the dynamically-placed reserved memory regions.
After paging_init(), this information is transferred to another
array which is dynamically allocated and used to store all the reserved
memory regions.

There is currently no obvious way to free the memory for the static
array after its contents are copied over to the dynamically allocated
array, but since the size required for the reserved_mem_array can vary
from device to device depending on the number of dynamically-placed
reserved memory regions, make the size of the array configurable in an
attempt to save some memory.
