    Subject[PATCH -v9 00/31] use lmb with x86
    Date
    the new lmb could be used to early_res in x86.

    Suggested by: David, Ben, and Thomas

    First three patches should go into 2.6.34

    -v6: change sequence as requested by Thomas
    -v7: seperate them to more patches
    -v8: add boundary checking to make sure not free partial page.
    -v9: use lmb_debug to control print out of reserve_lmb.
    add e820 clean up, and e820 become __initdata

    > size vmlinux.*
    text data bss dec hex filename
    20195694 4149812 12627536 36973042 23429f2 vmlinux.before_lmb_patchset
    20198187 4163892 12614736 36976815 23438af vmlinux.after_lmb_patchset

    Before:
    [ 12.124431] Freeing unused kernel memory: 2740k freed
    After:
    [ 11.514822] Freeing unused kernel memory: 2764k freed

    So We move about 24k to .init

    Please check

    Thanks

    Yinghai
