Subject[PATCH 5/5] x86: Allow Xen to enable NUMA_BALANCING
Date
Xen cannot use automatic NUMA balancing as they are depending on the same PTE
bit. There is another software bit that is currently used by software dirty
tracking of pages. This patch allows Xen to use that bit for automatic NUMA
balancing if MEM_SOFT_DIRTY is not enabled. If KMEMCHECK is enabled then
the bit is only set on global page tables so there should be no collision
with NUMA_BALANCING. This shuffling can be disabled if/when Xen moves away
from using _PAGE_BIT_IOMAP.
