Subject[PATCH 3.12 014/181] ACPI / memhotplug: add parameter to disable memory hotplug
Date
From: Prarit Bhargava <prarit@redhat.com>

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

===============

commit 00159a2013269bc0a617de885e4b921349192bd0 upstream.

When booting a kexec/kdump kernel on a system that has specific memory
hotplug regions the boot will fail with warnings like:

swapper/0: page allocation failure: order:9, mode:0x84d0

because the system has run out of memory at boot time. This occurs
because of the following sequence in the boot:

Main kernel boots and sets E820 map. The second kernel is booted with a
map generated by the kdump service using memmap= and memmap=exactmap.
These parameters are added to the kernel parameters of the kexec/kdump
kernel. The kexec/kdump kernel has limited memory resources so as not
to severely impact the main kernel.

The system then panics and the kdump/kexec kernel boots (which is a
completely new kernel boot). During this boot ACPI is initialized and the
kernel (as can be seen above) traverses the ACPI namespace and finds an
entry for a memory device to be hotadded.

ie)

[<ffffffff81a2019a>] acpi_scan_init+0x63/0x160
[<ffffffff81a1ffb5>] acpi_init+0x25d/0x2a6

At this point the kernel adds page table information and the the kexec/kdump
kernel runs out of memory.

This can also be reproduced by using the memmap=exactmap and mem=X
parameters on the main kernel and booting.

This patchset resolves the problem by adding a kernel parameter,
acpi_no_memhotplug, to disable ACPI memory hotplug.
