Subject: [v2 PATCH] mm: make CONFIG_DEFERRED_STRUCT_PAGE_INIT depends on !FLATMEM explicitly
Date: Mon, 23 May 2016 11:15:56 -0700
Message-ID: <1464027356-32282-1-git-send-email-yang.shi@linaro.org> (raw)

Per the suggestion from Michal Hocko [1], DEFERRED_STRUCT_PAGE_INIT requires
some ordering wrt other initialization operations, e.g. page_ext_init has to
happen after the whole memmap is initialized properly. For SPARSEMEM this
requires to wait for page_alloc_init_late. Other memory models (e.g. flatmem)
might have different initialization layouts (page_ext_init_flatmem). Currently
DEFERRED_STRUCT_PAGE_INIT depends on MEMORY_HOTPLUG which in turn
	depends on SPARSEMEM || X86_64_ACPI_NUMA
	depends on ARCH_ENABLE_MEMORY_HOTPLUG

and X86_64_ACPI_NUMA depends on NUMA which in turn disable FLATMEM
memory model:
config ARCH_FLATMEM_ENABLE
	def_bool y
	depends on X86_32 && !NUMA

so FLATMEM is ruled out via dependency maze. Be explicit and disable
FLATMEM for DEFERRED_STRUCT_PAGE_INIT so that we do not reintroduce
subtle initialization bugs
