Subject: [RFC PATCH 0/12] memory-hotplug : hot-remove physical memory
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.acpi.devel
Date: Wednesday 27th June 2012 05:39:20 UTC (over 5 years ago)
This patch series aims to support physical memory hot-remove.

  [RFC PATCH 1/12] memory-hotplug : rename remove_memory to offline_memory
  [RFC PATCH 2/12] memory-hogplug : check memory offline in offline_pages
  [RFC PATCH 3/12] memory-hotplug : add physical memory hotplug code to
acpi_memory_device_remove
  [RFC PATCH 4/12] memory-hotplug : remove /sys/firmware/memmap/X sysfs
  [RFC PATCH 5/12] memory hotplug : does not release memory region in
PAGES_PER_SECTION chunks
  [RFC PATCH 6/12] memory-hotplug : remove_memory calls __remove_pages
  [RFC PATCH 7/12] memory-hotplug : check page type in get_page_bootmem
  [RFC PATCH 8/12] memory-hotplug : move register_page_bootmem_info_node
and put_page_bootmem for
sparse-vmemmap
  [RFC PATCH 9/12] memory-hotplug : implement
register_page_bootmem_info_section of sparse-vmemmap
  [RFC PATCH 10/12] memory-hotplug : free memmap of sparse-vmemmap
  [RFC PATCH 11/12] memory-hotplug : add node_device_release
  [RFC PATCH 12/12] memory-hotplug : remove sysfs file of node

Even if you apply these patches, you cannot remove the physical memory
completely since these patches are still under development. I want you to
cooperate to improve the physical memory hot-remove. So please review these
patches and give your comment/idea.

The patches can free/remove following things:

  - acpi_memory_info                          : [RFC PATCH 3/12]
  - /sys/firmware/memmap/X/{end, start, type} : [RFC PATCH 4/12]
  - iomem_resource                            : [RFC PATCH 5/12]
  - mem_section and related sysfs files       : [RFC PATCH 6-10/12]
  - node and related sysfs files              : [RFC PATCH 11-12/12]

The patches cannot do following things yet:

  - page table of removed memory

If you find lack of function for physical memory hot-remove, please let me
know.
