[PATCH 5/7] mm/mm_init.c: Extend init unavailable range doc info

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


Besides of the already described reasons the pages backended memory holes
might be persistent due to having memory mapped IO spaces behind those
ranges in the framework of flatmem kernel config. Add such note to the
init_unavailable_range() method kdoc in order to point out to one more
reason of having the function executed for such regions.

Signed-off-by: Serge Semin <fancer.lancer@xxxxxxxxx>


Please let me know if the IO-space pages must be initialized somehow
differently rather relying on free_area_init() executing the
init_unavailable_range() method.
