Subject: [PATCH v6 00/18] ARM: Add support for the Large Physical Address Extensions
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Tuesday 24th May 2011 21:39:06 UTC (over 5 years ago)
Hi,

This set of patches adds support for the Large Physical Extensions on
the ARM architecture (available with the Cortex-A15 processor). LPAE
comes with a 3-level page table format (compared to 2-level for the
classic one), allowing up to 40-bit physical address space.

The ARM LPAE documentation is available from (free registration needed):

http://infocenter.arm.com/help/topic/com.arm.doc.ddi0406b_virtualization_extns/index.html

The full set of patches on top Linux 2.6.39 (LPAE, support for an
emulated Versatile Express with Cortex-A15 tile and generic timers) is
available on this branch:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/cmarinas/linux-2.6-cm.git
arm-lpae


Changelog:

- Rebased on top of Linux 2.6.39.
- Russell's nopud patch included in the branch above (but not posted as
  part of the LPAE series).
- The reserved ASID 0 is no longer used during context switching. The
  ASID fixes posted separately by Will Deacon have been included in the
  branch above.
- Fixes for ISBs during MMU enabling.
- Separate proc-v7lpae.S file to avoid unreadable asm code (there are a
  few other #ifdefs in head.S but not that many to require a dedicated
  LPAE() macro).


Catalin Marinas (14):
  ARM: LPAE: Use long long printk format for displaying the pud
  ARM: LPAE: Use unsigned long for __phys_to_virt and __virt_to_phys
  ARM: LPAE: Use PMD_(SHIFT|SIZE|MASK) instead of PGDIR_*
  ARM: LPAE: Factor out 2-level page table definitions into separate
    files
  ARM: LPAE: Add (pte|pmd|pgd|pgprot)val_t type definitions as u32
  ARM: LPAE: Use a mask for physical addresses in page table entries
  ARM: LPAE: Introduce the 3-level page table format definitions
  ARM: LPAE: Page table maintenance for the 3-level format
  ARM: LPAE: MMU setup for the 3-level page table format
  ARM: LPAE: Invalidate the TLB before freeing the PMD
  ARM: LPAE: Add fault handling support
  ARM: LPAE: Add context switching support
  ARM: LPAE: Add identity mapping support for the 3-level page table
    format
  ARM: LPAE: Add the Kconfig entries

Will Deacon (4):
  ARM: LPAE: add ISBs around MMU enabling code
  ARM: LPAE: Use generic dma_addr_t type definition
  ARM: LPAE: mark memory banks with start > ULONG_MAX as highmem
  ARM: LPAE: add support for ATAG_MEM64
