Subject: [PATCH -mm 2/3 -v3] kexec/i386: allocate page table pages dynamically
Date: Thu, 30 Oct 2008 16:17:08 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1225354628.24095.112.camel@yhuang-dev.sh.intel.com> (raw)

[-- Attachment #1: Type: text/plain, Size: 5312 bytes --]

This patch adds an architecture specific struct kimage_arch into
struct kimage. The pointers to page table pages used by kexec are
added to struct kimage_arch. The page tables pages are dynamically
allocated in machine_kexec_prepare instead of statically from BSS
segment. This will save up to 20k memory when kexec image is not
loaded.
