Is KVM enough or do I need hardware with AEP dimms? KVM is enough... however, I have found a hack that makes the test pass: diff --git a/mm/filemap.c b/mm/filemap.c index 52517f28e6f4..d7f035b1846e 100644 --- a/mm/filemap.c +++ b/mm/filemap.c @@ -1668,6 +1668,9 @@ unsigned find_get_entries(struct address_space *mapping, goto repeat; } export: + if (iter.index < start) + continue; + indices[ret] = iter.index; entries[ret] = page; if (++ret == nr_entries) Is this a radix bug? I would never expect: radix_tree_for_each_slot(slot, &mapping->i_pages, &iter, start) ...to return entries with an index < start. Without that change above we loop forever because dax_layout_busy_page() can't make forward progress. I'll dig into the radix code tomorrow, but maybe someone else will be me to it overnight. _______________________________________________ Linux-nvdimm mailing list Linuxfirstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.01.org/mailman/listinfo/linux-nvdimm
