Subject: [PATCH 0/6] ARM: mm: HugeTLB + THP support.
Date: Friday 8th February 2013 15:01:17 UTC (over 5 years ago)
Hello, The following patches bring both HugeTLB support and Transparent HugePage (THP) support to ARM. These are not intended for 3.9. Both short descriptors (non-LPAE) and long descriptors (LPAE) are supported. The non-LPAE HugeTLB code is based on patches by Bill Carson , but instead of allocating extra memory to store "Linux PTEs", it re-purposes the domain bits of section descriptors and constructs huge Linux PTEs on demand. As PMDs are walked directly by the kernel THP functions (there are no huge_pmd_offset style functions), any "linux PMD"/"hardware PMD" distinction would require some re-working of the ARM PMD/PTE code. Use of the domain bits allows for a more straightforward THP implementation. Some general HugeTLB code relating to huge page migration on memory failure (CONFIG_MEMORY_FAILURE) de-references huge pte_t *s directly rather than use the huge_ptep_get and set_huge_pte_at functions. Thus this config option is incompatible with non-LPAE hugepages. At the moment I can only see x86 using CONFIG_MEMORY_FAILURE though. Non-LPAE code was tested on an Arndale board (Exynos 5250) and a Tegra 2 TrimSlice. The LPAE code manipulates the hardware page tables directly as the long descriptors are wide enough to contain all the Linux PTE information. The LPAE code has been tested on an Arndale board (Exynos 5250). This patch set is based on 3.8-rc6. Major changes since the RFC: * huge pmd sharing removed from the 3-level code as this was found to be very rarely, if ever?, used. This allowed for some code simplification. * hardware pmd bits for 2-levels of paging are now taken from mmu.c. Also the mapping code now uses pte/pmd bit helper functions rather than the custom pre-processor logic.
