Gmane
From: Yinghai Lu <yinghai <at> kernel.org>
Subject: [PATCH v8 00/46] x86, mm: map ram from top-down with BRK and memblock.
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Saturday 17th November 2012 03:38:37 UTC (over 4 years ago)
rebase patchset together tip/x86/mm2 on top of linus v3.7-rc4

so this one include patchset : x86, mm: init_memory_mapping cleanup
in tip/x86/mm2
---
Current kernel init memory mapping between [0, TOML) and [4G, TOMH)
Some AMD systems have mem hole between 4G and TOMH, around 1T.
According to HPA, we should only mapping ram range.
1. Seperate calculate_table_space_size and find_early_page_table out with
   init_memory_mapping.
2. For all ranges, will allocate page table one time
3. init mapping for ram range one by one.
---

pre mapping page table patcheset includes:
1. use brk to mapping first PMD_SIZE range under end of ram.
2. top down to initialize page table range by range.
3. get rid of calculate_page_table, and find_early_page_table.
4. remove early_ioremap in page table accessing.
5. remove workaround in xen to mark page RO.

v2: changes, update xen interface about pagetable_reserve, so not
   use pgt_buf_* in xen code directly.
v3: use range top-down to initialize page table, so will not use
   calculating/find early table anymore.
   also reorder the patches sequence.
v4: add mapping_mark_page_ro to fix xen, also move pgt_buf_* to init.c
    and merge alloc_low_page(), and for 32bit need to add alloc_low_pages
    to fix 32bit kmap setting.
v5: remove mark_page_ro workaround  and add another 5 cleanup patches.
v6: rebase on v3.7-rc4 and add 4 cleanup patches.
v7: fix max_low_pfn_mapped for xen domu memmap that does not have hole
under 4g
    add pfn_range_is_mapped() calling for left over.
v8: updated some changelog and add some Acks from Stefano.
    Put v8 on every patch's subject, so hpa would not check old version.
    hope could catch window for v3.8
