[PATCH v2 1/3] drivers/of: recognize status property of dt memory nodes

From: Reza Arbab
Date: Wed Sep 14 2016 - 16:07:29 EST

Respect the standard dt "status" property when scanning memory nodes in
early_init_dt_scan_memory(), so that if the property is present and not
"okay", no memory will be added.

The use case at hand is accelerator or device memory, which may be
unusable until post-boot initialization of the memory link. Such a node
can be described in the dt as any other, given its status is "disabled".
Per the device tree specification,

Indicates that the device is not presently operational, but it
might become operational in the future (for example, something
is not plugged in, or switched off).

Once such memory is made operational, it can then be hotplugged.
