[PATCH 4.17 005/220] x86/platform/UV: Add kernel parameter to set memory block size

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Sun Jul 01 2018 - 13:22:27 EST

4.17-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: mike.travis@xxxxxxx <mike.travis@xxxxxxx>

commit d7609f4210cb716c11abfe2bfb5997191095d00b upstream.

Add a kernel parameter that allows setting UV memory block size. This
is to provide an adjustment for new forms of PMEM and other DIMM memory
that might require alignment restrictions other than scanning the global
address table for the required minimum alignment. The value set will be
further adjusted by both the GAM range table scan as well as restrictions
imposed by set_memory_block_size_order().
