Subject: [PATCH 00/12] device-dax: Support sub-dividing soft-reserved ranges
Date: Mon, 23 Mar 2020 16:54:31 -0700
Message-ID: <158500767138.2088294.17131646259803932461.stgit@dwillia2-desk3.amr.corp.intel.com> (raw)

The device-dax facility allows an address range to be directly mapped
through a chardev, or turned around and hotplugged to the core kernel
page allocator as System-RAM. It is the baseline mechanism for
converting persistent memory (pmem) to be used as another volatile
memory pool i.e. the current Memory Tiering hot topic on linux-mm.

In the case of pmem the nvdimm-namespace-label mechanism can sub-divide
it, but that labeling mechanism is not available / applicable to
soft-reserved ("EFI specific purpose") memory [1]. This series provides
a sysfs-mechanism for the daxctl utility to enable provisioning of
volatile-soft-reserved memory ranges.

The motivations for this facility are:

1/ Allow performance differentiated memory ranges to be split between
   kernel-managed and directly-accessed use cases.

2/ Allow physical memory to be provisioned along performance relevant
   address boundaries. For example, divide a memory-side cache [2] along
   cache-color boundaries.

3/ Parcel out soft-reserved memory to VMs using device-dax as a security
   / permissions boundary [3]. Specifically I have seen people (ab)using
   memmap=nn!ss (mark System-RAM as Peristent Memory) just to get the
   device-dax interface on custom address ranges.

The baseline for this series is today's next/master + "[PATCH v2 0/6]
Manual definition of Soft Reserved memory devices" [4].

Big thanks to Joao for the early testing and feedback on this series!

Given the dependencies on the memremap_pages() reworks in Andrew's tree
and the proximity to v5.7 this is clearly v5.8 material. The patches in
most need of a second opinion are the memremap_pages() reworks to switch
from 'struct resource' to 'struct range' and allow for an array of
ranges to be mapped at once.
