SubjectRe: [PATCH] of/fdt: Make sure no-map does not remove already reserved regions
From
Date
Quoting Nicolas Boichat (2019-07-02 22:08:27)
> If the device tree is incorrectly configured, and attempts to
> define a "no-map" reserved memory that overlaps with the kernel
> data/code, the kernel would crash quickly after boot, with no
> obvious clue about the nature of the issue.
>
> For example, this would happen if we have the kernel mapped at
> these addresses (from /proc/iomem):
> 40000000-41ffffff : System RAM
> 40080000-40dfffff : Kernel code
> 40e00000-411fffff : reserved
> 41200000-413e0fff : Kernel data
>
> And we declare a no-map shared-dma-pool region at a fixed address
> within that range:
> mem_reserved: mem_region {
> compatible = "shared-dma-pool";
> reg = <0 0x40000000 0 0x01A00000>;
> no-map;
> };
>
> To fix this, when removing memory regions at early boot (which is
> what "no-map" regions do), we need to make sure that the memory
> is not already reserved. If we do, __reserved_mem_reserve_reg
> will throw an error:
> [ 0.000000] OF: fdt: Reserved memory: failed to reserve memory
> for node 'mem_region': base 0x0000000040000000, size 26 MiB
> and the code that will try to use the region should also fail,
> later on.
>
> We do not do anything for non-"no-map" regions, as memblock
> explicitly allows reserved regions to overlap, and the commit
> that this fixes removed the check for that precise reason.
