Subject[PATCH 0/4] kcore: cleanup and fix bahavior to find physcal memory range v2
I'm sorry I can't find who should be in CC.

This includes some amounts changes to arch-specici code,
but very special codes for kcore. Can I test this in -mm if no objections ?

Now, /proc/kcore 's physical memory information is set up at boot
via kclist_add(). But it's not updated at memory hotplug etc and
it can include much memory holes. This patch is for generatinc /proc/kcore
based on memory management information maintained by the kernel.

For usual archs, /proc/iomem is used
For ppc, lmb information will be used.

This is v2. bugs/bahavior is fixed. Below is output of
"readelf -l /proc/kcore" before/after the patch. (on my vm host..)


=====[Before]======
Elf file type is CORE (Core file)
Entry point 0x0
There are 6 program headers, starting at offset 64

====[After]=====


Elf file type is CORE (Core file)
Entry point 0x0
There are 8 program headers, starting at offset 64

You can see the section

LOAD 0x0000080000003000 0xffff880000000000 0x0000000000000000
0x0000000065400000 0x0000000065400000 RWE 1000
is divided into

LOAD 0x0000080065303000 0xffff880065300000 0x0000000000000000
0x0000000000100000 0x0000000000100000 RWE 1000
LOAD 0x0000080000103000 0xffff880000100000 0x0000000000000000
0x00000000651f0000 0x00000000651f0000 RWE 1000
LOAD 0x0000080000013000 0xffff880000010000 0x0000000000000000
0x000000000008f000 0x000000000008f000 RWE 1000

This is on physical memory information.

And yes, this host's memory map is following.
(This is same to /proc/iomem, of course)
[ 0.000000] early_node_map[3] active PFN ranges
[ 0.000000] 0: 0x00000010 -> 0x0000009f
[ 0.000000] 0: 0x00000100 -> 0x000652f0
[ 0.000000] 0: 0x00065300 -> 0x00065400


Thanks,
-Kame
