Subject: [PATCH v2 0/3] x86/mm/64: Remove vmalloc/ioremap pgtable synchronization
Date: Wed,  1 Jul 2020 10:38:35 +0200
Message-ID: <> (raw)


here is a small patch-set to implement pre-allocation of the P4D/PUD
pages in the vmalloc/ioremap area of the address space. This allows to
remove the synchronization of these mappings for x86-64 and unexporting
the sync_global_pgds() function.

Please review.



Changes to v1:

	- Made failure at pre-allocation stage fatal
	- As a consequence removed the arch_sync_kernel_mappings()
	  implementation for x86-64
	- Unexported sync_global_pgds()
	- Removed some left-over debug code from the first patch

Joerg Roedel (3):
  x86/mm/64: Pre-allocate p4d/pud pages for vmalloc area
  x86/mm/64: Do not sync vmalloc/ioremap mappings
  x86/mm/64: Make sync_global_pgds() static
