Subject[PATCH v5 0/7] mm: Merge hmm into devm_memremap_pages, mark GPL-only
Changes since v4 [1]:
* Rebase on v4.19-rc3
* Update changelogs and cover letter



Hi Andrew,

Back from vacation and this series is still top of mind.
devm_memremap_pages() is a facility that can create struct page entries
for any arbitrary range and give drivers the ability to subvert core
aspects of page management. It, and anything derived from it (e.g. hmm,
pcip2p, etc...), is an EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL() interface.

I see that commit 31c5bda3a656 "mm: fix exports that inadvertently make
put_page() EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL" was merged ahead of this series to relieve
some of the pressure from innocent consumers of put_page(), but now we
need this series to address *producers* of device pages.

More details and justification in the changelogs. The 0day
infrastructure has reported success across 182 configs and this survives
the libnvdimm unit test suite. Aside from the controversial bits the
diffstat is compelling at:

7 files changed, 138 insertions(+), 328 deletions(-).

Note that the series has some minor collisions with Alex's recent series
to improve devm_memremap_pages() scalability [2]. So, whichever you take
first the other will need a minor rebase.



Dan Williams (7):
mm, devm_memremap_pages: Mark devm_memremap_pages() EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL
mm, devm_memremap_pages: Kill mapping "System RAM" support
mm, devm_memremap_pages: Fix shutdown handling
mm, devm_memremap_pages: Add MEMORY_DEVICE_PRIVATE support
mm, hmm: Use devm semantics for hmm_devmem_{add,remove}
mm, hmm: Replace hmm_devmem_pages_create() with devm_memremap_pages()
mm, hmm: Mark hmm_devmem_{add,add_resource} EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL
