[PATCH 6/8] drivers: add Contiguous Memory Allocator

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


The Contiguous Memory Allocator is a set of helper functions for DMA
mapping framework that improves allocations of contiguous memory chunks.

CMA grabs memory on system boot, marks it with CMA_MIGRATE_TYPE and
gives back to the system. Kernel is allowed to allocate movable pages
within CMA's managed memory so that it can be used for example for page
cache when DMA mapping do not use it. On dma_alloc_from_contiguous()
request such pages are migrated out of CMA area to free required
contiguous block and fulfill the request. This allows to allocate large
contiguous chunks of memory at any time assuming that there is enough
free memory available in the system.

This code is heavily based on earlier works by Michal Nazarewicz.

+ * Contiguous Memory Allocator
+ *
+ *   The Contiguous Memory Allocator (CMA) makes it possible to
+ *   allocate big contiguous chunks of memory after the system has
+ *   booted.
+ *
+ * Why is it needed?
+ *
+ *   Various devices on embedded systems have no scatter-getter and/or
+ *   IO map support and require contiguous blocks of memory to
+ *   operate.  They include devices such as cameras, hardware video
+ *   coders, etc.
+ *
+ *   Such devices often require big memory buffers (a full HD frame
+ *   is, for instance, more then 2 mega pixels large, i.e. more than 6
+ *   MB of memory), which makes mechanisms such as kmalloc() or
+ *   alloc_page() ineffective.
+ *
+ *   At the same time, a solution where a big memory region is
+ *   reserved for a device is suboptimal since often more memory is
+ *   reserved then strictly required and, moreover, the memory is
+ *   inaccessible to page system even if device drivers don't use it.
+ *
+ *   CMA tries to solve this issue by operating on memory regions
+ *   where only movable pages can be allocated from.  This way, kernel
+ *   can use the memory for pagecache and when device driver requests
+ *   it, allocated pages can be migrated.
+ *
+ * Driver usage
+ *
+ *   CMA should not be used by the device drivers directly. It is
+ *   only a helper framework for dma-mapping subsystem.
+ *
