Subject[ 06/85] ARM: 7488/1: mm: use 5 bits for swapfile type encoding
Date
From: Greg KH <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>

3.4-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Will Deacon <will.deacon@arm.com>

commit f5f2025ef3e2cdb593707cbf87378761f17befbe upstream.

Page migration encodes the pfn in the offset field of a swp_entry_t.
For LPAE, we support physical addresses of up to 36 bits (due to
sparsemem limitations with the size of page flags), requiring 24 bits
to represent a pfn. A further 3 bits are used to encode a swp_entry into
a pte, leaving 5 bits for the type field. Furthermore, the core code
defines MAX_SWAPFILES_SHIFT as 5, so the additional type bit does not
get used.

This patch reduces the width of the type field to 5 bits, allowing us
to create up to 31 swapfiles of 64GB each.
