Subject[PATCH v2 0/5] Memory hotplug support for arm64 - complete patchset v2
Hi all,

this is a second round of patches to introduce memory hotplug and
hotremove support for arm64. It builds on the work previously published at
[1] and it implements the feedback received in the first round of reviews.

The patchset applies and has been tested on commit bebc6082da0a ("Linux

Due to a small regression introduced with commit 8135d8926c08
("mm: memory_hotplug: memory hotremove supports thp migration"), you
will need to appy patch [2] first, until the fix is not upstreamed.

Comments and feedback are gold.


Changes v1->v2:
- swapper pgtable updated in place on hot add, avoiding unnecessary copy
- stop_machine used to updated swapper on hot add, avoiding races
- introduced check on offlining state before hot remove
- new memblock flag used to mark partially unused vmemmap pages, avoiding
the nasty 0xFD hack used in the prev rev (and in x86 hot remove code)
- proper cleaning sequence for p[um]ds,ptes and related TLB management
- Removed macros that changed hot remove behavior based on number
of pgtable levels. Now this is hidden in the pgtable traversal macros.
- Check on the corner case where P[UM]Ds would have to be split during
hot remove: now this is forbidden.
- Minor fixes and refactoring.
