Subject: [RFC V7 PATCH 00/19] memory-hotplug: hot-remove physical memory
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.acpi.devel
Date: Monday 20th August 2012 09:35:23 UTC (over 5 years ago)
From: Wen Congyang 

This patch series aims to support physical memory hot-remove.

The patches can free/remove the following things:

  - acpi_memory_info                          : [RFC PATCH 4/19]
  - /sys/firmware/memmap/X/{end, start, type} : [RFC PATCH 8/19]
  - iomem_resource                            : [RFC PATCH 9/19]
  - mem_section and related sysfs files       : [RFC PATCH 10-11, 13-16/19]
  - page table of removed memory              : [RFC PATCH 12/19]
  - node and related sysfs files              : [RFC PATCH 18-19/19]

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

Known problems:
1. memory can't be offlined when CONFIG_MEMCG is selected.

change log of v7:
 [RFC PATCH v7 4/19]
   * do not continue if acpi_memory_device_remove_memory() fails.
 [RFC PATCH v7 15/19]
   * handle usemap in register_page_bootmem_info_section() too.

change log of v6:
 [RFC PATCH v6 12/19]
   * fix building error on other archtitectures than x86

 [RFC PATCH v6 15-16/19]
   * fix building error on other archtitectures than x86

change log of v5:
 * merge the patchset to clear page table and the patchset to hot remove
   memory(from ishimatsu) to one big patchset.

 [RFC PATCH v5 1/19]
   * rename remove_memory() to offline_memory()/offline_pages()

 [RFC PATCH v5 2/19]
   * new patch: implement offline_memory(). This function offlines pages,
     update memory block's state, and notify the userspace that the memory
     block's state is changed.

 [RFC PATCH v5 4/19]
   * offline and remove memory in acpi_memory_disable_device() too.

 [RFC PATCH v5 17/19]
   * new patch: add a new function __remove_zone() to revert the things
     in the function __add_zone().

 [RFC PATCH v5 18/19]
   * flush work befor reseting node device.

change log of v4:
 * remove "memory-hotplug : unify argument of
   from the patch series, since the patch is a bugfix. It is being
   on other thread. But for testing the patch series, the patch is needed.
   So I added the patch as [PATCH 0/13].

 [RFC PATCH v4 2/13]
   * check memory is online or not at remove_memory()
   * add memory_add_physaddr_to_nid() to acpi_memory_device_remove() for
     getting node id
 [RFC PATCH v4 3/13]
   * create new patch : check memory is online or not at online_pages()

 [RFC PATCH v4 4/13]
   * add __ref section to remove_memory()
   * call firmware_map_remove_entry() before remove_sysfs_fw_map_entry()

 [RFC PATCH v4 11/13]
   * rewrite register_page_bootmem_memmap() for removing page used as

change log of v3:
 * rebase to 3.5.0-rc6

 [RFC PATCH v2 2/13]
   * remove extra kobject_put()

   * The patch was commented by Wen. Wen's comment is
     "acpi_memory_device_remove() should ignore a return value of
     remove_memory() since caller does not care the return value".
     But I did not change it since I think caller should care the
     return value. And I am trying to fix it as follow:


 [RFC PATCH v2 4/13]
   * remove a firmware_memmap_entry allocated by kzmalloc()

change log of v2:
 [RFC PATCH v2 2/13]
   * check whether memory block is offline or not before calling
   * check whether section is valid or not in is_memblk_offline()
   * call kobject_put() for each memory_block in is_memblk_offline()

 [RFC PATCH v2 3/13]
   * unify the end argument of firmware_map_add_early/hotplug

 [RFC PATCH v2 4/13]
   * add release_firmware_map_entry() for freeing firmware_map_entry

 [RFC PATCH v2 6/13]
  * add release_memory_block() for freeing memory_block

 [RFC PATCH v2 11/13]
  * fix wrong arguments of free_pages()
