Subject[PATCH v1 1/2] powerpc/pseries/hotplug-memory: stop checking is_mem_section_removable()
Date
In commit 53cdc1cb29e8 ("drivers/base/memory.c: indicate all memory
blocks as removable"), the user space interface to compute whether a memory
block can be offlined (exposed via
/sys/devices/system/memory/memoryX/removable) has effectively been
deprecated. We want to remove the leftovers of the kernel implementation.

When offlining a memory block (mm/memory_hotplug.c:__offline_pages()),
we'll start by:
1. Testing if it contains any holes, and reject if so
2. Testing if pages belong to different zones, and reject if so
3. Isolating the page range, checking if it contains any unmovable pages

Using is_mem_section_removable() before trying to offline is not only racy,
it can easily result in false positives/negatives. Let's stop manually
checking is_mem_section_removable(), and let device_offline() handle it
completely instead. We can remove the racy is_mem_section_removable()
implementation next.

We now take more locks (e.g., memory hotplug lock when offlining and the
zone lock when isolating), but maybe we should optimize that
implementation instead if this ever becomes a real problem (after all,
memory unplug is already an expensive operation). We started using
is_mem_section_removable() in commit 51925fb3c5c9 ("powerpc/pseries:
Implement memory hotplug remove in the kernel"), with the initial
hotremove support of lmbs.
