Subject: [PATCH] xtensa: use MEMBLOCK_ALLOC_ANYWHERE for KASAN shadow map
Date: Wed, 13 Nov 2019 17:08:24 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

KASAN shadow map doesn't need to be accessible through the linear kernel
mapping, allocate its pages with MEMBLOCK_ALLOC_ANYWHERE so that high
memory can be used. This frees up to ~100MB of low memory on xtensa
configurations with KASAN and high memory.

Cc: # v5.1+
Fixes: f240ec09bb8a ("memblock: replace memblock_alloc_base(ANYWHERE)
		     with memblock_phys_alloc")
