I'll post newest patches for memory hotadd with pgdat allocation as V3.
There are many changes to make more common code.
This may be too many patches, but I would like to show
total feature of this code now.
This patches are for 2.6.16-rc5-mm3.
I tested these patch on just Tiger4(ia64) with emulation now.
But, I'll test them for x86-64 too after this post.
This is memory hotadd code when new node is added.
In this patch, pgdat is allocated when new node is comming.
To initialize pgdat and zones, a set of patches are necessary.
- to allcate and initialize pgdat, zone, zonelist.
- to make new kswapd
- to initialize node_data array (ia64)
- to register sysfs file for new node.
- to call memory_hotplug code from acpi container driver.
- kzalloc is used for pgdat allocation in this version.
So, even if pgdat is allocated, it will be allocated on the other node.
This is only to simplify patches a bit. :-P
Followings are updates.
Updates from V2 to V3.
- update for 2.6.16-rc5-mm3.
- The caller function of pgdat allcation and so on become common code.
- Passing node id at add_memory().
- build_zonelists() is called after that pages are onlined.
- Updating NODE_DATA() for ia64 become simple and become
common code between booting and hotadd.
(But other consideration will be necessary for hot-remove.)
- kswapd is called by kthread_run().
- finding node id by acpi use handle of its memory device.
Updates from V1 to V2.
- update for 2.6.16-rc5-mm2.
- not only ia64, This is tested on x86_64 with NUMA emulation too. :-)
- wait_table_size() allcation is changed.
- Take max size as much as possible.
- Change using GFP_ATOMIC. It is inside of zone_init_lock.
(Warining message of might_sleep() is very well.)
- stop_machine_run(build_zonelists) is move to outside of lock.
- pgdat_insert() is moved to generic code to be used by x86_64.
- add decision of ZONE_DMA32 or ZONE_NORMAL to x86_64's add_memory().
- Make a separated patch to change from __init to __meminit.
- Fix some typo
