[PATCH 0/3] mm/memory_hotplug: fixes for memory hotplug altmap support

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


Patch 1  adds  the missing lock  in memory hotplug operations,
ensuring that the mem_hotplug_lock is held during critical operations
like mhp_init_memmap_on_memory() and mhp_deinit_memmap_on_memory()

Patch 2 deals with error handling in add_memory_resource() and considers
the possibility of altmap support. This ensures proper deallocation of
struct pages, aligning with the allocation strategy.

Patch 3 relocates the vmem_altmap code to sparse-vmemmap.c, enabling the
utilization of vmem_altmap_free() and vmem_altmap_offset() without the
dependency on CONFIG_ZONE_DEVICE.

Changes since patch series "implement "memmap on memory" feature on
Feedback from David:
Patch 1:
* Fixed subject for memory hotplug lock.
* Added locking comments before
Patch 2:
* Fixed Fixes-by commit.

lkp report:
Patch 3:
* when CONFIG_SPARSEMEM_VMEMMAP is disabled, resolve
  undefined reference to `vmem_altmap_offset' error.
* Request for Reviewed-by once again due to the change in patch3.

Thank you
