Subject[PATCH v10 3/12] x86, asm: Change is_new_memtype_allowed() for WT
Date
__ioremap_caller() calls reserve_memtype() to set new_pcm
(existing map type if any), and then calls
is_new_memtype_allowed() to verify if converting to new_pcm
is allowed when pcm (request type) is different from new_pcm.

When WT is requested, the caller expects that writes are
ordered and uncached. Therefore, this patch changes
is_new_memtype_allowed() to disallow the following cases.

- If the request is WT, mapping type cannot be WB
- If the request is WT, mapping type cannot be WC
