Subject: [PATCH v7 00/16] ARM: Add support for the Large Physical Address Extensions
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Wednesday 10th August 2011 15:03:23 UTC (over 5 years ago)
Hi,

This is version 7 of the set of patches adding support for the Large
Physical Address Extensions on the ARM architecture (available with the
Cortex-A15 processor). LPAE comes with a new 3-level page table format
(compared to 2-level for the classic one), allowing up to 40-bit
physical address space.

This set of patches against Linux 3.1-rc1 is available on this branch:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/cmarinas/linux-2.6-cm.git
for-next

The full set of patches against Linux 3.0 (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 (from v6):

- Rebased against Linux 3.1-rc1.
- pteval_t, pmdval_t etc. typedefs reworked for consistency.
- __phys_to_virt/__virt_to_phys macros typecasting patch removed (an
  explicit cast to unsigned long has been added to dma_to_virt).
- Generic dma_addr_t patch removed (already fixed upstream).

Known issues:

- RMK's nopud patch not in mainline yet (compiler warnings) but carried
  over in the above branches.
- No decission on using the ISB during MMU enabling (no simple
  alternative solution).
- The patch converting PGDIR_* to PMD_* may be further modified
  depending on the merging of the DMA coherent patches and other changes
  to prepare_page_tables() proposed by RMK.


Catalin Marinas (13):
  ARM: LPAE: Cast the dma_addr_t argument to unsigned long in
    dma_to_virt
  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)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 (3):
  ARM: LPAE: add ISBs around MMU enabling code
  ARM: LPAE: mark memory banks with start > ULONG_MAX as highmem
  ARM: LPAE: add support for ATAG_MEM64
