Subject[mm PATCH v7 0/4] Deferred page init improvements
This patchset is essentially a refactor of the page initialization logic
that is meant to provide for better code reuse while providing a
significant improvement in deferred page initialization performance.

In my testing on an x86_64 system with 384GB of RAM I have seen the
following. In the case of regular memory initialization the deferred init
time was decreased from 3.75s to 1.38s on average. This amounts to a 172%
improvement for the deferred memory initialization performance.

I have called out the improvement observed with each patch.

Fixed build issue on PowerPC due to page struct size being 56
Added new patch that removed __SetPageReserved call for hotplug
Rebased on latest linux-next
Removed patch that had removed __SetPageReserved call from init
Added patch that folded __SetPageReserved into set_page_links
Tweaked __init_pageblock to use start_pfn to get section_nr instead of pfn
Updated patch description and comments for mm_zero_struct_page patch
Replaced "default" with "case 64"
Removed #ifndef mm_zero_struct_page
Fixed typo in comment that ommited "_from" in kerneldoc for iterator
Added Reviewed-by for patches reviewed by Pavel
Added Acked-by from Michal Hocko
Added deferred init times for patches that affect init performance
Swapped patches 5 & 6, pulled some code/comments from 4 into 5
Updated Acks/Reviewed-by
Rebased on latest linux-next
Split core bits of zone iterator patch from MAX_ORDER_NR_PAGES init
Rebased on linux-next with previous v5 reverted
Drop the "This patch" or "This change" from patch descriptions.
Cleaned up patch descriptions for patches 3 & 4
Fixed kerneldoc for __next_mem_pfn_range_in_zone
Updated several Reviewed-by, and incorporated suggestions from Pavel
Added __init_single_page_nolru to patch 5 to consolidate code
Refactored iterator in patch 7 and fixed several issues
Updated MAX_ORDER_NR_PAGES patch to stop on section aligned boundaries
Dropped patches 5-7
Will follow-up later with reserved bit rework before resubmitting


Alexander Duyck (4):
mm: Use mm_zero_struct_page from SPARC on all 64b architectures
mm: Drop meminit_pfn_in_nid as it is redundant
mm: Implement new zone specific memblock iterator
mm: Initialize MAX_ORDER_NR_PAGES at a time instead of doing larger sections
