[RFC PATCH v2 5/13] memory-hotplug : does not release memory region in PAGES_PER_SECTION chunks

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Since applying a patch(de7f0cba96786c), release_mem_region() has been changed
as called in PAGES_PER_SECTION chunks because register_memory_resource() is
called in PAGES_PER_SECTION chunks by add_memory(). But it seems firmware
dependency. If CRS are written in the PAGES_PER_SECTION chunks in ACPI DSDT
Table, register_memory_resource() is called in PAGES_PER_SECTION chunks.
But if CRS are written in the DIMM unit in ACPI DSDT Table,
register_memory_resource() is called in DIMM unit. So release_mem_region()
should not be called in PAGES_PER_SECTION chunks. The patch fixes it.
