[PATCH v1 0/4] virtio-mem: memory unplug/offlining related cleanups

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


Some cleanups+optimizations primarily around offline_and_remove_memory().

Patch #1 drops the "unsafe unplug" feature where we might get stuck in
offline_and_remove_memory() forever.

Patch #2 handles unexpected errors from offline_and_remove_memory() a bit

Patch #3 handles the case where offline_and_remove_memory() failed and
we want to retry later to remove a completely unplugged Linux memory
block, to not have them waste memory forever.

Patch #4 something I had lying around for longer, which reacts faster
on config changes when unplugging memory.

David Hildenbrand (4):
  virtio-mem: remove unsafe unplug in Big Block Mode (BBM)
  virtio-mem: convert most offline_and_remove_memory() errors to -EBUSY
  virtio-mem: keep retrying on offline_and_remove_memory() errors in Sub
    Block Mode (SBM)
  virtio-mem: check if the config changed before fake offlining memory
