Subject: [PATCH 4/5] efi/arm: defer persistent reservations until after paging_init()
Date: Wed, 14 Nov 2018 09:55:43 -0800
Message-ID: <20181114175544.12860-5-ard.biesheuvel@linaro.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20181114175544.12860-1-ard.biesheuvel@linaro.org>

The new memory EFI reservation feature we introduced to allow memory
reservations to persist across kexec may trigger an unbounded number
of calls to memblock_reserve(). The memblock subsystem can deal with
this fine, but not before memblock resizing is enabled, which we can
only do after paging_init(), when the memory we reallocate the array
into is actually mapped.

So break out the memreserve table processing into a separate routine
and call it after paging_init() on arm64. On ARM, because of limited
reviewing bandwidth of the maintainer, we cannot currently fix this,
so instead, disable the EFI persistent memreserve entirely on ARM so
we can fix it later.
