Subject: [PATCH V5 2/4] mm: introduce memory type MEMORY_DEVICE_DEV_DAX
Date: Sat,  8 Sep 2018 02:03:39 +0800
Message-ID: <c0b53c74379e6d654bbe42471fcef8aa5fd22efd.1536342881.git.yi.z.zhang@linux.intel.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.1536342881.git.yi.z.zhang@linux.intel.com>

Currently, NVDIMM pages will be marked 'PageReserved'. However, unlike
other reserved PFNs, pages on NVDIMM shall still behave like normal ones
in many cases, i.e. when used as backend memory of KVM guest. This patch
introduces a new memory type, MEMORY_DEVICE_DEV_DAX. And set this flag
while dax driver hotplug the device memory.
