    Subject[PART5 Patch 0/5] introduce a new boot option 'kernelcore_max_addr'
    Date
    From: Lai Jiangshan <laijs@cn.fujitsu.com>

    This patch is part5 of the following patchset:
    https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/10/29/319

    The patchset is based on Linus's tree with these three patches already applied:
    https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/10/24/151
    https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/10/26/150

    Part1 is here:

    Part2 is here:

    Part3 is here:
    http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=135167050510527&w=2

    Part4 is here:

    You can apply this patch without the other parts. But it only can work with
    part1-5.

    We need something like kernelcore_max_addr=XX boot option to limit the
    kernelcore upper address.

    The memory with higher address will be migratable(movable) and they
    are easier to be offline(always ready to be offline when the system don't require
    so much memory).

    It makes things easy when we dynamic hot-add/remove memory, make better
    utilities of memories, and helps for THP.

    page_alloc: add kernelcore_max_addr

    Yasuaki Ishimatsu (4):
    x86: get pg_data_t's memory from other node
    x86: use memblock_set_current_limit() to set memblock.current_limit
    memblock: limit memory address from memblock
    memblock: compare current_limit with end variable at
    memblock_find_in_range_node()
