Subjectioremap_xxx() with EXEC enabled
From
Date
Hi,

On i386, EFI may need to map EFI runtime code area as EXEC enabled with
ioremap(). But, I found that the memory are mapped as EXEC disabled when
mapped with ioremap() now. I think we may need a method to map memory
area as EXEC enabled with ioremap_xxx(). Some possible interface schemes
for mapping as EXEC enabled are as follow:

- Interface scheme 1:

ioremap_cache_exec()
ioremap_uncache_exec()

- Interface scheme 2:

enum ioremap_mode {
IOR_MODE_UNCACHED,
IOR_MODE_CACHED,
};
enum ioremap_xmode {
IOR_XMODE_UNEXEC,
IOR_XMODE_EXEC,
};
void __iomem *__ioremap(unsigned long phys_addr, unsigned long size,
enum ioremap_mode mode,
enum ioremap_xmode xmode);


Which one do you think is better? Or we should use some other interface
or method?

Best Regards,
Huang Ying
