Subject[PATCH v4 0/3] resource: Use list_head to link sibling resource
This patchset is doing:
1) Replace struct resource's sibling list from singly linked list to
list_head. Clearing out those pointer operation within singly linked
list for better code readability.
2) Based on list_head replacement, add a new function
walk_system_ram_res_rev() which can does reversed iteration on
iomem_resource's siblings.
3) Change kexec_file loading to search system RAM top down for kernel
loadin, using walk_system_ram_res_rev().

This patchset passed testing on my kvm guest, x86_64 arch with network
enabling. The thing we need pay attetion to is that a root resource's
child member need be initialized specifically with LIST_HEAD_INIT() if
statically defined or INIT_LIST_HEAD() for dynamically definition. Here
Just like we do for iomem_resource/ioport_resource, or the change in

Links of the old posting(Boris pointed out that we should use, while it can't be opened from
my side, so paste all of them here.):



Fix several bugs test robot reported. Rewrite cover letter and patch
log according to reviewer's comment.

Rename resource functions first_child() and sibling() to
resource_first_chils() and resource_sibling(). Dan suggested this.

Move resource_first_chils() and resource_sibling() to linux/ioport.h
and make them as inline function. Rob suggested this. Accordingly add
linux/list.h including in linux/ioport.h, please help review if this
bring efficiency degradation or code redundancy.

The change on struct resource {} bring two pointers of size increase,
mention this in git log to make it more specifically, Rob suggested

Use list_head instead to link resource siblings. This is suggested by

Rewrite walk_system_ram_res_rev() after list_head is taken to link
resouce siblings.

resource: add walk_system_ram_res_rev()
kexec_file: Load kernel at top of system RAM if required
