Subject: [PATCH] Fake NUMA emulation for PowerPC (Take 2)
Date: Sat, 08 Dec 2007 04:07:14 +0530	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20071207223714.11448.91386.sendpatchset@balbir-laptop> (raw)


Changelog

1. Get rid of the constant 5 (based on comments from
                                Geert.Uytterhoeven@sonycom.com)
2. Implement suggestions from Olof Johannson
3. Check if cmdline is NULL in fake_numa_create_new_node()

Tested with additional parameters from Olof

numa=debug,fake=
numa=foo,fake=bar


Here's a dumb simple implementation of fake NUMA nodes for PowerPC. Fake
NUMA nodes can be specified using the following command line option

numa=fake=<node range>

node range is of the format <range1>,<range2>,...<rangeN>

Each of the rangeX parameters is passed using memparse(). I find the patch
useful for fake NUMA emulation on my simple PowerPC machine. I've tested it
on a non-numa box with the following arguments

numa=fake=1G
numa=fake=1G,2G
name=fake=1G,512M,2G
numa=fake=1500M,2800M mem=3500M
numa=fake=1G mem=512M
numa=fake=1G mem=1G

This patch applies on top of 2.6.24-rc4.

All though I've tried my best to handle some of the architecture specific
details of PowerPC, I might have overlooked something obvious, like the usage
of an API or some architecture tweaks. The patch depends on CONFIG_NUMA and
I decided against creating a separate config option for fake NUMA to keep
the code simple.

Comments are as always welcome!
