Subject[PATCH] UV: memory allocation at initialization
From
Date


From: Cliff Wickman <cpw@sgi.com>

UV initialization is currently called too late to call alloc_bootmem_pages().
The current sequence is:

start_kernel()
mem_init()
free_all_bootmem() <--- discard of bootmem
rest_init()
kernel_init()
smp_prepare_cpus()
native_smp_prepare_cpus()
uv_system_init() <--- uses alloc_bootmem_pages()

It should be calling kmalloc().

Diffed against 2.6.27 (linux-next)
