Subject[v6 3/3] device-dax: "Hotremove" persistent memory that is used like normal RAM
Date
It is now allowed to use persistent memory like a regular RAM, but
currently there is no way to remove this memory until machine is
rebooted.

This work expands the functionality to also allows hotremoving
previously hotplugged persistent memory, and recover the device for use
for other purposes.

To hotremove persistent memory, the management software must first
offline all memory blocks of dax region, and than unbind it from
device-dax/kmem driver. So, operations should look like this:

echo offline > /sys/devices/system/memory/memoryN/state
...
echo dax0.0 > /sys/bus/dax/drivers/kmem/unbind

Note: if unbind is done without offlining memory beforehand, it won't be
possible to do dax0.0 hotremove, and dax's memory is going to be part of
System RAM until reboot.
