[PATCH v1 0/4] mm/memory_hotplug: full support for

From: David Hildenbrand
Date: Mon Sep 27 2021 - 11:05:46 EST

Architectures that require CONFIG_ARCH_KEEP_MEMBLOCK=y, such as arm64,
don't cleanly support add_memory_driver_managed() yet. Most prominently,
kexec_file can still end up placing images on such driver-managed memory,
resulting in undesired behavior.

Teaching kexec to not place images on driver-managed memory is especially
relevant for virtio-mem. Details can be found in commit 7b7b27214bba
("mm/memory_hotplug: introduce add_memory_driver_managed()").

Extend memblock with a new flag and set it from memory hotplug code
when applicable. This is required to fully support virtio-mem on
arm64, making also kexec_file behave like on x86-64.

Alternative A: Extend kexec_walk_memblock() to consult the kernel resource
tree whether IORESOURCE_SYSRAM_DRIVER_MANAGED is set. This feels wrong,
because the goal was to rely on memblock and not the resource tree.

Alternative B: Reuse MEMBLOCK_HOTPLUG. MEMBLOCK_HOTPLUG serves a different
purpose, though.
