Subject: [RFC PATCH 0/5] arm64: initial CPU_HOTPLUG support
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.ports.arm.kernel
Date: Wednesday 10th July 2013 22:11:14 UTC (over 4 years ago)
The following patches add basic CPU_HOTPLUG support to arm64, which
combined with appropriate firmware (e.g. [1]) can be used to power CPUs
up and down dynamically. From discussions at connect it seemed that
several people were interested in working in this area, so I thought I'd
make my current implementation public now that I've managed to regain
access to my inbox.

I've tested this series with the bootwrapper PSCI implementation I've
placed on linux-arm.org [1] and a modified foundation model dts with a
psci node and each CPU's enable-method set to "psci", using a shell
while repeatedly cycling all cpus off and on:

for C in $(seq 0 3); do
	./cyclichotplug.sh $C >/dev/null 2>&1 &
done

---->8----
#!/bin/sh
# cyclichotplug.sh

CPU=$1;

if [ -z "$CPU" ]; then
	printf "Usage: $0 \n";
	exit 1;
fi

ONLINEFILE=/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu$CPU/online;

while true; do
	echo 0 > $ONLINEFILE;
	echo 1 > $ONLINEFILE;
done
---->8----

Patches are based on v3.10.

Thanks,
Mark.
