Subject: [-mm PATCH] docs/vm: Update ZONE_DEVICE memory model documentation
Date: Thu, 20 Jun 2019 22:43:37 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <156109575458.1409767.1885676287099277666.stgit@dwillia2-desk3.amr.corp.intel.com> (raw)

Mike notes that Sphinx needs a newline before the start of a bulleted
list, and v10 of the subsection patch set changed the subsection size
from an arch-variable 'PMD_SIZE' to a constant 2MB.

Hi Andrew,

Another small fixup to fold on top of the subsection series. Thanks to
Mike for the build test, I also caught that the doc was out of date.
