SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/2] x86/boot/KASLR: Add two functions for 1GB huge pages handling
Hi Baoquan,

I have reviewed the patch, I think the caculation of address has no
problem. But maybe I miss something, so I have several questions.

The global variable 'max_gb_huge_pages' means how many huge pages
user specified when you get it from command line.
But here, everytime we find a position which is good for huge page
allocation, the 'max_gdb_huge_page' decreased. So in my understanding,
it is used to store how many huge pages that we still need to search memory
for good slots to filter out, right?
If it's right, maybe the name 'max_gb_huge_pages' is not very suitable.
If my understanding is wrong, please tell me.

This line may be unusable.

I have another question not related to kaslr.
Here you try to avoid the memory from addr to (addr + i * PUD_SIZE),
but I wonder if after walking all memory regions, 'max_gb_huge_pages'
is still more than 0, which means there isn't enough memory slots for
huge page, what will happen?

Thanks,
Chao Fan
