Subject[PATCH v2 0/4] efi: Fix handling of multiple efi_fake_mem= entries
From
Date
Changes since v1 [1]:
- Add support for garbage collecting idle efi_memmap_alloc() allocations

- As Dave noticed the same problem of calling efi_memmap_split_count()
multiple times with the old map also applies to efi_memmap_insert().
Update efi_fake_memmap() to invoke efi_memmap_install() after every
efi_memmap_insert() call.

[1]: https://lore.kernel.org/r/157773590338.4153451.5898675419563883883.stgit@dwillia2-desk3.amr.corp.intel.com/

Copied from patch4:

Dave noticed that when specifying multiple efi_fake_mem= entries only
the last entry was successfully being reflected in the efi memory map.
This is due to the fact that the efi_memmap_insert() is being called
multiple times, but on successive invocations the insertion should be
applied to the last new memmap rather than the original map at
efi_fake_memmap() entry.

Rework efi_fake_memmap() to install the new memory map after each
efi_fake_mem= entry is parsed.

This also fixes an issue in efi_fake_memmap() that caused it to litter
emtpy entries into the end of the efi memory map. The empty entry causes
efi_memmap_insert() to attempt more memmap splits / copies than
efi_memmap_split_count() accounted for when sizing the new map.

BUG: unable to handle page fault for address: ffffffffff281000

Commit af1648984828 "x86/efi: Update e820 with reserved EFI boot
services data to fix kexec breakage" is listed in Fixes: since it
introduces more occurrences where efi_memmap_insert() is invoked after
an efi_fake_mem= configuration has been parsed. Previously the side
effects of vestigial empty entries were benign, but with commit
af1648984828 that follow-on efi_memmap_insert() invocation triggers the
above crash signature.
