Hi Hannes,

For those of us who haven't read the HEA spec lately, can you give us
some more detail on that? :)

How does it interact with kexec/kdump?

phys_to_abs() ? As below, or does it come from somewhere else?

arch/powerpc/include/asm/abs_addr.h:
47 static inline unsigned long phys_to_abs(unsigned long pa)
48 {
49 unsigned long chunk;
50
51 /* This is a no-op on non-iSeries */
52 if (!firmware_has_feature(FW_FEATURE_ISERIES))
53 return pa;
54
55 chunk = addr_to_chunk(pa);
56
57 if (chunk < mschunks_map.num_chunks)
58 chunk = mschunks_map.mapping[chunk];
59
60 return chunk_to_addr(chunk) + (pa & MSCHUNKS_OFFSET_MASK);
61 }


cheers
