Subject: [PATCH 00/15] mm: move core MM initialization to mm/mm_init.c

From: "Mike Rapoport (IBM)" <>

Also in git:

This set moves most of the core MM initialization to mm/mm_init.c.

This largely includes free_area_init() and its helpers, functions used at
boot time, mm_init() from init/main.c and some of the functions it calls.

Aside from gaining some more space before mm/page_alloc.c hits 10k lines,
this makes mm/page_alloc.c to be mostly about buddy allocator and moves the
init code out of the way, which IMO improves maintainability.

Besides, this allows to move a couple of declarations out of include/linux
and make them private to mm/.

And as an added bonus there a slight decrease in vmlinux size.
For tinyconfig and defconfig on x86 I've got
