Subject: [PATCH 00/10] Enhance /dev/mem to allow read/write of arbitrary physical addresses
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Friday 17th June 2011 08:38:25 UTC (over 5 years ago)
This patch series enhances /dev/mem, so that read and write is possible
at any address. The patchset includes actual implementation for x86.

Petr Tesarik (10):
  Return EOF on out-of-bounds read from /dev/mem
  (un)xlate_dev_mem_ptr: use phys_addr_t for the @phys parameter
  x86: translate highmem /dev/mem pointers
  ia64: change xlate_dev_mem_ptr's argument to phys_addr_t
  valid_phys_addr_range: use phys_addr_t for the @addr parameter
  sh: change valid_phys_addr_range's @addr param to phys_addr_t
  arm: change valid_phys_addr_range's @addr param to phys_addr_t
  ia64: change valid_phys_addr_range's @addr param to phys_addr_t
  x86: provide arch-specific valid_phys_addr_range()
  Allow reading/writing all memory through /dev/mem
