[PATCH 0/3] mtrr, mm, x86: Enhance MTRR checks for huge I/O mapping
From: Toshi Kani
Date: Tue Mar 10 2015 - 16:24:41 EST
This patchset enhances MTRR checks for the kernel huge I/O mapping,
which was enabled by the patchset below:
The following functional changes are made in patch 3/3.
- Allow pud_set_huge() and pmd_set_huge() to create a huge page
mapping to a range covered by a single MTRR entry of any memory
- Log a pr_warn() message when a requested PMD map range spans more
than a single MTRR entry. Drivers should make a mapping request
aligned to a single MTRR entry when the range is covered by MTRRs.
Patch 1/3 addresses other review comments to the mapping funcs for
better code read-ability. Patch 2/3 fixes a bug in mtrr_type_lookup().
The patchset is based on the -mm tree.

1/3 mm, x86: Document return values of mapping funcs
2/3 mtrr, x86: Fix MTRR lookup to handle inclusive entry
3/3 mtrr, mm, x86: Enhance MTRR checks for KVA huge page mapping
