Subject[PATCH v10 2/12] x86, mm, pat: Change reserve_memtype() for WT
Date
This patch changes reserve_memtype() to support the WT cache mode
with PAT. When PAT is not enabled, WB and UC- are the only types
supported.

When a target range is in RAM, reserve_ram_pages_type() verifies
the requested type. reserve_ram_pages_type() is changed to fail
WT and WP requests with -EINVAL since set_page_memtype() is
limited to handle three types, WB, WC and UC-.
