Subject[PATCH v6 11/13] x86/mm/pat: Prepare {reserve, free}_memtype() for "decoy" addresses
From
Date
In preparation for using set_memory_uc() instead set_memory_np() for
isolating poison from speculation, teach the memtype code to sanitize
physical addresses vs __PHYSICAL_MASK.

The motivation for using set_memory_uc() for this case is to allow
ongoing access to persistent memory pages via the pmem-driver +
memcpy_mcsafe() until the poison is repaired.
