SubjectRe: [v3 9/9] s390: teach platforms not to zero struct pages memory
From
Date
Hi Heiko,

Thank you for looking at this patch. I am worried to make the proposed
change, because, as I understand in this case we allocate memory not for
"struct page"s but for table that hold them. So, we will change the
behavior from the current one, where this table is allocated zeroed, but
now it won't be zeroed.
