Subject: Re: [PATCH v3 1/4] kaslr: add immovable_mem=nn[KMG]@ss[KMG] to
 specify extracting memory

Hi Chao,

Yes, now the code looks much better than the last version.

One concern is whether it will fail to do KASLR if only specify
"movable_node". Surely in this case it won't fail system, just hotplug
memory might be impacted if kernel is located on that, will FJ mind
this? And what if only specify 'immovable_mem=' but without 'movable_node'?

Thanks
