    Subject[Patch v4 0/7] acpi,memory-hotplug : implement framework for hot removing memory
    The memory device can be removed by 2 ways:
    1. send eject request by SCI
    2. echo 1 >/sys/bus/pci/devices/PNP0C80:XX/eject

    In the 1st case, acpi_memory_disable_device() will be called.
    In the 2nd case, acpi_memory_device_remove() will be called.
    acpi_memory_device_remove() will also be called when we unbind the
    memory device from the driver acpi_memhotplug or a driver initialization

    acpi_memory_disable_device() has already implemented a code which
    offlines memory and releases acpi_memory_info struct . But
    acpi_memory_device_remove() has not implemented it yet.

    So the patch prepares the framework for hot removing memory and
    adds the framework into acpi_memory_device_remove().

    The last version of this patchset is here:

    Note: patch1-2 are in pm tree now. And there is a bug in patch1, so I resend
    them. The commit in pm tree is:
    patch1: 85fcb3758c10e063a2a30dfad75017097999deed
    patch2: d0fbb400b6f3a6191bdc5024f8733b2e2b86338f

    Changes from v3 to v4:
    1. patch1: unlock list_lock when removing memory fails.
    2. patch2: just rebase them
    3. patch3-7: these patches are in -mm tree, and they conflict with this
    patchset, so Adrew Morton drop them from -mm tree. I rebase and merge
    them into this patchset.

    Wen Congyang (6):
    acpi,memory-hotplug: introduce a mutex lock to protect the list in
    acpi_memhotplug.c: fix memory leak when memory device is unbound from
    the module acpi_memhotplug
    acpi_memhotplug.c: free memory device if acpi_memory_enable_device()
    acpi_memhotplug.c: don't allow to eject the memory device if it is
    being used
    acpi_memhotplug.c: bind the memory device when the driver is being
    acpi_memhotplug.c: auto bind the memory device which is hotplugged
    before the driver is loaded

    acpi,memory-hotplug : add memory offline code to
