Subject: [PATCH v3 3/3] kexec_file: Load kernel at top of system RAM if required
Date: Thu, 19 Apr 2018 08:18:48 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20180419001848.3041-4-bhe@redhat.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20180419001848.3041-1-bhe@redhat.com>

For kexec_file loading, if kexec_buf.top_down is 'true', the memory which
is used to load kernel/initrd/purgatory is supposed to be allocated from
top to down. This is what we have been doing all along in the old kexec
loading interface and the kexec loading is still default setting in some
distributions. However, the current kexec_file loading interface doesn't
do likt this. The function arch_kexec_walk_mem() it calls ignores checking
kexec_buf.top_down, but calls walk_system_ram_res() directly to go through
all resources of System RAM from bottom to up, to try to find memory region
which can contain the specific kexec buffer, then call locate_mem_hole_callback()
to allocate memory in that found memory region from top to down. This brings
confusion. These two interfaces need be unified on behaviour.

Here add checking if kexec_buf.top_down is 'true' in arch_kexec_walk_mem(),
if yes, call the newly added walk_system_ram_res_rev() to find memory region
from top to down to load kernel.
