Subject: [PATCH v4 0/4] arm64: drop pfn_valid_within() and simplify pfn_valid()
Date: Tue, 11 May 2021 13:05:46 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210511100550.28178-1-rppt@kernel.org> (raw)

From: Mike Rapoport <rppt@linux.ibm.com>

Hi,

These patches aim to remove CONFIG_HOLES_IN_ZONE and essentially hardwire
pfn_valid_within() to 1. 

The idea is to mark NOMAP pages as reserved in the memory map and restore
the intended semantics of pfn_valid() to designate availability of struct
page for a pfn.

With this the core mm will be able to cope with the fact that it cannot use
NOMAP pages and the holes created by NOMAP ranges within MAX_ORDER blocks
will be treated correctly even without the need for pfn_valid_within.

The patches are boot tested on qemu-system-aarch64.

I beleive it would be best to route these via mmotm tree.

v4:
* rebase on v5.13-rc1

v3: Link: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20210422061902.21614-1-rppt@kernel.org
* Fix minor issues found by Anshuman
* Freshen up the declaration of pfn_valid() to make it consistent with
  pfn_is_map_memory()
* Add more Acked-by and Reviewed-by tags, thanks Anshuman and David

v2: Link: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20210421065108.1987-1-rppt@kernel.org
* Add check for PFN overflow in pfn_is_map_memory()
* Add Acked-by and Reviewed-by tags, thanks David.

v1: Link: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20210420090925.7457-1-rppt@kernel.org
* Add comment about the semantics of pfn_valid() as Anshuman suggested
* Extend comments about MEMBLOCK_NOMAP, per Anshuman
* Use pfn_is_map_memory() name for the exported wrapper for
  memblock_is_map_memory(). It is still local to arch/arm64 in the end
  because of header dependency issues.
