Subject[PATCH v2 00/14] introduce generic pte_{alloc,free}_one[_kernel]
Date
Hi,

Many architectures have similar, if not identical implementation of
pte_alloc_one_kernel(), pte_alloc_one(), pte_free_kernel() and pte_free().

A while ago Anshuman suggested to introduce a common definition of
GFP_PGTABLE and during the discussion it was suggested to rather
consolidate the allocators.

These patches introduce generic version of PTE allocation and free and
enable their use on several architectures.

The conversion introduces some changes for some of the architectures.
Here's the executive summary and the details are described at each patch.

* Most architectures do not set __GFP_ACCOUNT for the user page tables.
Switch to the generic functions is "spreading that goodness to all other
architectures"
* arm, arm64 and unicore32 used to check if the pte is not NULL before
freeing its memory in pte_free_kernel(). It's dropped during the
conversion as it seems superfluous.
* x86 used to BUG_ON() is pte was not page aligned duirng
pte_free_kernel(), the generic version simply frees the memory without any
checks.

This set only performs the straightforward conversion, the architectures
with different logic in pte_alloc_one() and pte_alloc_one_kernel() are not
touched, as well as architectures that have custom page table allocators.

v2 changes:
* rebase on the current upstream
* fix copy-paste error in the description of pte_free()
* fix changelog for MIPS to match actual changes
* drop powerpc changes
* add Acked/Reviewed tags
