Subject: Re: [PATCH V4 2/4] mm: introduce memory type MEMORY_DEVICE_DEV_DAX


> 
> 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.
