Subject[PATCH 1 of 4] hotplug-memory: add add_memory_resource
Date
From
The Xen balloon driver uses hotplug memory to extend the amount of
pseudo-physical memory available to a virtual domain. Since this memory
is virtual, it can go anywhere within the kernel's pseudo-physical
address space.

This patch adds a new hotplug memory call, add_memory_resource(), which
adds memory corresponding to a pre-constructed resource. This allows
callers to use allocate_resource() to allocate a suitable chunk of
address space for the new memory (as well as cosmetic details, like a
descriptive name).
