SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/2] powerpc/nodes: Ensure enough nodes avail for operations

This is a powerpc-only patch, so saying "systems like PowerPC" is
confusing. What you should be saying is "On pseries systems".

What is current associativity domains? I've not heard of it, where is it
documented, and what does it mean.

Why would use the "current" set vs the "max"? I thought the whole point
was to discover the maximum possible set of nodes that could be
hotplugged.

This should really be called "find_possible_nodes()" or something more
descriptive.

If you just short-circuit that return the whole function body can be
deintented, making it significantly more readable.

ie:
+ rtas = of_find_node_by_path("/rtas");
+ if (!rtas)
+ return;

Please don't use of_get_property() in new code, we have much better
accessors these days, which do better error checking and handle the
endian conversions for you.

In this case you'd use eg:

u32 entries;
rc = of_property_read_u32(rtas, "ibm,current-associativity-domains", &entries);

^
You can't just guess that will be the right entry.

If min_common_depth is < 0 the function should have just returned
immediately at the top.

If min_common_depth is outside the range of the property that's a buggy
device tree, you should print a warning and return.

> + numnodes = of_read_number(&prop[entries], 1);

u32 num_nodes;
rc = of_property_read_u32_index(rtas, "ibm,current-associativity-domains", min_common_depth, &num_nodes);

Do we actually need to setup the NODE_DATA() yet? Doing it now ensures
it will not be allocated node local, which sucks.

You need to update the comment above here which is contradicted by the
new function you're adding.
