Subject: [PATCH 11/20] x86/mm/pat: Extend set_page_memtype() to support Write-Through type
Date: Thu,  4 Jun 2015 18:55:19 +0200
Message-ID: <1433436928-31903-12-git-send-email-bp@alien8.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1433436928-31903-1-git-send-email-bp@alien8.de>

From: Toshi Kani <toshi.kani@hp.com>

As set_memory_wb() calls free_ram_pages_type(), which then calls
set_page_memtype() with -1, _PGMT_DEFAULT is used for tracking the WB
type. _PGMT_WB is defined but unused. Thus, rename _PGMT_DEFAULT to
_PGMT_WB to clarify the usage, and release the slot used by _PGMT_WB.

Furthermore, change free_ram_pages_type() to call set_page_memtype()
with _PGMT_WB, and get_page_memtype() to return _PAGE_CACHE_MODE_WB for
_PGMT_WB.

Then, define _PGMT_WT in the freed slot. This allows set_page_memtype()
to track the WT type.
