Subject: [PATCH v2 1/3] x86/mm/64: Pre-allocate p4d/pud pages for vmalloc area
Date: Wed,  1 Jul 2020 10:38:36 +0200
Message-ID: <20200701083839.19193-2-joro@8bytes.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200701083839.19193-1-joro@8bytes.org>

From: Joerg Roedel <jroedel@suse.de>

Pre-allocate the page-table pages for the vmalloc area at the level
which needs synchronization on x86. This is P4D for 5-level and PUD
for 4-level paging.

Doing this at boot makes sure all page-tables in the system have these
pages already and do not need to be synchronized at runtime. The
runtime synchronizatin takes the pgd_lock and iterates over all
page-tables in the system, so it can take quite long and is better
avoided.
