SubjectRe: [PATCH] Revert "mm: page_alloc: skip over regions of invalid pfns where possible"
Hi Daniel,

Hmm... I only just noticed this because you CC'd an email address that
is no longer functional. I presume you're not using .mailmap, which
would have given you my current email address.

My patch definitely wasn't ARM-specific & I have never tested it on ARM.
It was motivated by a MIPS platform with an extremely sparse memory map.
Could you explain why you think it depends on ARM or
CONFIG_HAVE_ARCH_PFN_VALID?

Which VM_BUG_ON is that? I don't see one on line 1389 as of commit
b92df1de5d28 ("mm: page_alloc: skip over regions of invalid pfns where
possible") or any mainline final release since.

I'm not really sure what I'm looking at here. I presume you're saying
that memmap_init_zone() didn't initialize the struct page for
phys=0x7b788000?

Could you describe the memblock region list, and what ranges
memmap_init_zone() skipped over?

Thanks,
Paul
