[PATCH v2] 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 present due to having non-memory regions covered by the contiguous
flatmem mapping. 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.

Changelog v2:
- The holes in the memory are actually justified by having the flatmem
  mapping model. Change the patch and the log accordingly. (@Mike)
