Subject[PATCH v5 16/17] dax/hmem: introduce dax_hmem.region_idle parameter
From
Date
From: Joao Martins <joao.m.martins@oracle.com>

Introduce a new module parameter for dax_hmem which initializes all region
devices as free, rather than allocating a pagemap for the region by
default.

All hmem devices created with dax_hmem.region_idle=1 will have full
available size for creating dynamic dax devices.
