Subject[PATCHv5 00/10] Heterogeneuos memory node attributes
== Changes since v4 ==

All public interfaces have kernel docs.

Renamed "class" to "access", docs and changed logs updated
accordingly. (Rafael)

The sysfs hierarchy is altered to put initiators and targets in their
own attribute group directories (Rafael).

The node lists are removed. This feedback is in conflict with v1
feedback, but consensus wants to remove multi-value sysfs attributes,
which includes lists. We only have symlinks now, just like v1 provided.

Documentation and code patches are combined such that the code
introducing new attributes and its documentation are in the same
patch. (Rafael and Dan).

The performance attributes, bandwidth and latency, are moved into the
initiators directory. This should make it obvious for which node
access the attributes apply, which was previously ambiguous.
(Jonathan Cameron).

The HMAT code selecting "local" initiators is substantially changed.
Only PXM's that have identical performance to the HMAT's processor PXM
in Address Range Structure are registered. This is to avoid considering
nodes identical when only one of several perf attributes are the same.
(Jonathan Cameron).

Verbose variable naming. Examples include "initiator" and "target"
instead of "i" and "t", "mem_pxm" and "cpu_pxm" instead of "m" and
"p". (Rafael)

Compile fixes for when HMEM_REPORTING is not set. This is not a user
selectable config option, default 'n', and will have to be selected
by other config options that require it (Greg KH and Rafael).

== Background ==

Platforms may provide multiple types of cpu attached system memory. The
memory ranges for each type may have different characteristics that
applications may wish to know about when considering what node they want
their memory allocated from.

It had previously been difficult to describe these setups as memory
rangers were generally lumped into the NUMA node of the CPUs. New
platform attributes have been created and in use today that describe
the more complex memory hierarchies that can be created.

This series' objective is to provide the attributes from such systems
that are useful for applications to know about, and readily usable with
existing tools and libraries.
