Subject[RFC v1 0/4] arm64: MMU enabled kexec kernel relocation
Date
Added identity mapped page table, and keep MMU enabled while
kernel is being relocated from sparse pages to the final
destination during kexec.

More description about the problem I am trying to solve here, can be
found here:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20190709182014.16052-1-pasha.tatashin@soleen.com/

This patch series works in terms, that I can kexec-reboot both in QEMU
and on a physical machine. However, I do not see performance improvement
during relocation. The performance is just as slow as before with disabled
caches.

Am I missing something? Perhaps, there is some flag that I should also
enable in page table? Please provide me with any suggestions.
