Subject: [PATCH v4 03/10] efi: Enumerate EFI_MEMORY_SP
Date: Mon, 24 Jun 2019 11:19:43 -0700
Message-ID: <156140038345.2951909.2744090763307487180.stgit@dwillia2-desk3.amr.corp.intel.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <156140036490.2951909.1837804994781523185.stgit@dwillia2-desk3.amr.corp.intel.com>

UEFI 2.8 defines an EFI_MEMORY_SP attribute bit to augment the
interpretation of the EFI Memory Types as "reserved for a specific
purpose". The intent of this bit is to allow the OS to identify precious
or scarce memory resources and optionally manage it separately from
EfiConventionalMemory. As defined older OSes that do not know about this
attribute are permitted to ignore it and the memory will be handled
according to the OS default policy for the given memory type.

In other words, this "specific purpose" hint is deliberately weaker than
EfiReservedMemoryType in that the system continues to operate if the OS
takes no action on the attribute. The risk of taking no action is
potentially unwanted / unmovable kernel allocations from the designated
resource that prevent the full realization of the "specific purpose".
For example, consider a system with a high-bandwidth memory pool. Older
kernels are permitted to boot and consume that memory as conventional
"System-RAM" newer kernels may arrange for that memory to be set aside
by the system administrator for a dedicated high-bandwidth memory aware
application to consume.

Specifically, this mechanism allows for the elimination of scenarios
where platform firmware tries to game OS policy by lying about ACPI SLIT
values, i.e. claiming that a precious memory resource has a high
distance to trigger the OS to avoid it by default.

Implement simple detection of the bit for EFI memory table dumps and
save the kernel policy for a follow-on change.
