Subject[PATCHv7 00/19] Boot-time switching between 4- and 5-level paging for 4.15
Date
The basic idea is to implement the same logic as pgtable-nop4d.h provides,
but at runtime.

Runtime folding is only implemented for CONFIG_X86_5LEVEL=y case. With the
option disabled, we do compile-time folding as before.

Initially, I tried to fold pgd instread. I've got to shell, but it
required a lot of hacks as kernel threats pgd in a special way.

Ingo, if no objections, could you apply the series?

v7:
- Rebased to up-to-date tip/master;
- Use xor instead of mov for zeroing registers in assembly;

v6:
- Fix few checkpatch warnings;

v5:
- Split changes into more patches;
- Rename p4d_folded to pgtable_l5_enabled and reverse logic around it;
- Update commit messages to reflect effect on kernel image size;

v4:
- Use ALTERNATIVE to patch return_from_SYSCALL_64 (Andi);
- Use __read_mostly where appropriate (Andi);
- Make X86_5LEVEL dependant on SPARSEMEM_VMEMMAP;
- Fix build errors and warnings;

v3:
- Make sparsemem data structures allocation dynamic to lower memory overhead on
4-level paging machines;
- Allow XEN_PV and XEN_PVH to be enabled with X86_5LEVEL;
- XEN cleanups;


Kirill A. Shutemov (19):
mm/sparsemem: Allocate mem_section at runtime for SPARSEMEM_EXTREME
mm/zsmalloc: Prepare to variable MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS
x86/kasan: Use the same shadow offset for 4- and 5-level paging
x86/xen: Provide pre-built page tables only for XEN_PV and XEN_PVH
x86/xen: Drop 5-level paging support code from XEN_PV code
x86/boot/compressed/64: Detect and handle 5-level paging at boot-time
x86/mm: Make virtual memory layout movable for CONFIG_X86_5LEVEL
x86/mm: Make PGDIR_SHIFT and PTRS_PER_P4D variable
x86/mm: Make MAX_PHYSADDR_BITS and MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS dynamic
x86/mm: Make __PHYSICAL_MASK_SHIFT and __VIRTUAL_MASK_SHIFT dynamic
x86/mm: Make STACK_TOP_MAX dynamic
x86/mm: Adjust virtual address space layout in early boot.
x86/mm: Make early boot code support boot-time switching of paging
modes
x86/mm: Fold p4d page table layer at runtime
x86/mm: Replace compile-time checks for 5-level with runtime-time
x86/mm: Allow to boot without la57 if CONFIG_X86_5LEVEL=y
x86/xen: Allow XEN_PV and XEN_PVH to be enabled with X86_5LEVEL
x86/mm: Redefine some of page table helpers as macros
x86/mm: Offset boot-time paging mode switching cost
