Subject[HMM v14 00/16] HMM (Heterogeneous Memory Management) v14
Date
Cliff note: HMM offers 2 things (each standing on its own). First
it allows to use device memory transparently inside any process
without any modifications to process program code. Second it allows
to mirror process address space on a device.

Change since v13 are small, it was about including everyone remarks
into the patchset (splitting each features into its own kernel config,
adding better comment, splitting optimization from base implementation,
improved comments, ...).


Patchset is divided into 3 features that can each be use independently
from one another. First is changes to ZONE_DEVICE so we can have struct
page for device un-addressable memory (patch 2-6). Second is process
address space mirroring (patch 8 to 10), this allow to snapshot CPU
page table and to keep the device page table synchronize with the CPU
one.

Last is a new page migration helper which allow migration for range of
virtual address using hardware copy engine (patch 11-14).

Other patches just introduce common definitions or add safety net to
catch wrong use of some of the features.


Andrew do you want anyone specific to review any specific part of the
patchset before considering it for inclusion ? At this point i want
to know if there is ever a chance of getting this upstream or do we
decide that we don't want to support this kind of hardware ?


In this patchset i restricted myself to set of core features what
is missing:
- force read only on CPU for memory duplication and GPU atomic
- changes to mmu_notifier for optimization purposes
- migration of file back page to device memory

I plan to submit a couple more patchset to implement those features
once core HMM is upstream.
