Subject: [PATCH 2/2] dma-pool: allow user to disable atomic pool
Date: Thu, 24 Jun 2021 13:20:10 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210624052010.5676-3-bhe@redhat.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210624052010.5676-1-bhe@redhat.com>

In the current code, three atomic memory pools are provided,
atomic_pool_kernel, atomic_pool_dma, atomic_pool_dma32, initialized
with flag GFP_KERNEL, GFP_KERNEL|GFP_DMA, GFP_KERNEL|GFP_DMA32.
And they are always enabled, even though 'coherent_pool=0' is
specified in kernel command line.

In some cases, atomic pool may not be needed. And worse, it even will
cause problem. E.g in kdump kernel of x86_64, it will cause OOM for
atomic_pool_dma initialization. Because there isn't available memory
for buddy allocatory in DMA zone of kdump kernel since commit
f1d4d47c5851 ("x86/setup: Always reserve the first 1M of RAM"). 
The OOM will cause panic if panic_on_oom is added into kdump kernel.

So change code to adjust the existing coherent_pool to allow user
to disable atomic pool by specifying 'coherent_pool=0'.
