Subject: [PATCH v4 00/23] device-dax: Support sub-dividing soft-reserved
 ranges

Changes since v3 [1]:
- Update x86 boot options documentation for 'nohmat' (Randy)

- Fixup a handful of kbuild robot reports, the most significant being
  moving usage of PUD_SIZE and PMD_SIZE under
  #ifdef CONFIG_TRANSPARENT_HUGEPAGE protection.

Merge notes:

Well, no v5.8-rc8 to line this up for v5.9, so next best is early
integration into -mm before other collisions develop.

Chatted with Justin offline and it currently appears that the missing
numa information is the fault of the platform firmware to populate all
the necessary NUMA data in the NFIT.

Cover:

The device-dax facility allows an address range to be directly mapped
through a chardev, or optionally hotplugged to the core kernel page
allocator as System-RAM. It is the mechanism for converting persistent
memory (pmem) to be used as another volatile memory pool i.e. the
current Memory Tiering hot topic on linux-mm.

In the case of pmem the nvdimm-namespace-label mechanism can sub-divide
it, but that labeling mechanism is not available / applicable to
soft-reserved ("EFI specific purpose") memory [3]. This series provides
a sysfs-mechanism for the daxctl utility to enable provisioning of
volatile-soft-reserved memory ranges.

The motivations for this facility are:

1/ Allow performance differentiated memory ranges to be split between
   kernel-managed and directly-accessed use cases.

2/ Allow physical memory to be provisioned along performance relevant
   address boundaries. For example, divide a memory-side cache [4] along
   cache-color boundaries.

3/ Parcel out soft-reserved memory to VMs using device-dax as a security
   / permissions boundary [5]. Specifically I have seen people (ab)using
   memmap=nn!ss (mark System-RAM as Persistent Memory) just to get the
   device-dax interface on custom address ranges. A follow-on for the VM
   use case is to teach device-dax to dynamically allocate 'struct page' at
   runtime to reduce the duplication of 'struct page' space in both the
   guest and the host kernel for the same physical pages.
