[PATCH v3 0/2] s390/pgtable: misc small improvements

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


This series has two small improvements for the s390 page tables. they
fix some small inconsistencies and missing things.

The first aligns the layout of large puds with that of large pmds;
there is no reason for the large pud read and write softbits to be
swapped compared to large pmds.

The second adds a few bits to _SEGMENT_ENTRY_BITS,
those bits are supposed to always be zero, the current code was working
correctly since those bits were being ignored and always left set to
zero. The patch also introduces _REGION3_ENTRY_HARDWARE_BITS and
_REGION3_ENTRY_HARDWARE_BITS_LARGE, for completeness, which are the
bitmasks of the hardware bits for normal puds and large puds.

* update patch description for the second patch
* add the missing pmd bits and _REGION3_ENTRY_HARDWARE_BITS

Claudio Imbrenda (2):
  s390/pgtable: switch read and write softbits for puds
  s390/pgtable: add missing hardware bits for puds, pmds
