Subject: [PATCHv3 0/5] arm64: initial CPU hotplug support
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.ports.arm.kernel
Date: Wednesday 14th August 2013 16:20:23 UTC (over 4 years ago)
The following patches add basic HOTPLUG_CPU support to arm64, which
combined with appropriate firmware (e.g. [1]) can be used to power CPUs
up and down dynamically.

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----

Since v1 [2]:
* Rebased to v3.11-rc2 to solve cpuinit removal conflicts.
* Removed failure path for cpu_die, it causes more problems than it solves.
* Removed cpu_kill, we don't currently need it.
* Test for cpu_die in op_cpu_disable to fail early and survive when there's
no
  mechanism for hot unplug.
* Change pr_err on failed cpu_die to a pr_crit.
* Removed dependency on HOTPLUG, which has been obliterated.

Since v2 [3]:
* Rebased to v3.11-rc4 to prevent clash with Xen [4].
* Added proper kerneldoc comments to smp_operations.
* Removed harmful RCU_NONIDLE from cpu_die as per arm
  implementation (aa03381046: ARM: smp: Drop RCU_NONIDLE usage in
cpu_die()).
* Expanded cpu_die comments.
* Added missing newline to pr_crit in smp_psci_cpu_die().

Thanks,
Mark.
