Subject: [PATCH V2 0/3] mm/hotplug: Pre-validate the address range with platform
Date: Thu, 17 Dec 2020 20:58:29 +0530	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

This series adds a mechanism allowing platforms to weigh in and prevalidate
incoming address range before proceeding further with the memory hotplug.
This helps prevent potential platform errors for the given address range,
down the hotplug call chain, which inevitably fails the hotplug itself.

This mechanism was suggested by David Hildenbrand during another discussion
with respect to a memory hotplug fix on arm64 platform.

This mechanism focuses on the addressibility aspect and not [sub] section
alignment aspect. Hence check_hotplug_memory_range() and check_pfn_span()
have been left unchanged. Wondering if all these can still be unified in
an expanded memhp_range_allowed() check, that can be called from multiple
memory hot add and remove paths.

This series applies on v5.10 and has been tested on arm64. But only
build tested on s390.

Changes in V2:

- Changed s390 version per Heiko and updated the commit message
- Called memhp_range_allowed() only for arch_add_memory() in pagemap_range()
- Exported the symbol memhp_get_pluggable_range() 

Changes in V1:

- Fixed build problems with (MEMORY_HOTPLUG & !MEMORY_HOTREMOVE)
- Added missing prototype for arch_get_mappable_range()
- Added VM_BUG_ON() check for memhp_range_allowed() in arch_add_memory() per David

Changes in RFC V2:

Incorporated all review feedbacks from David.

- Added additional range check in __segment_load() on s390 which was lost
- Changed is_private init in pagemap_range()
- Moved the framework into mm/memory_hotplug.c
- Made arch_get_addressable_range() a __weak function
- Renamed arch_get_addressable_range() as arch_get_mappable_range()
- Callback arch_get_mappable_range() only handles range requiring linear mapping
- Merged multiple memhp_range_allowed() checks in register_memory_resource()
- Replaced WARN() with pr_warn() in memhp_range_allowed()
- Replaced error return code ERANGE with E2BIG
