Another thought... I notice that you've taught
register_memory_resource() a IORESOURCE_MEM_DRIVER_MANAGED special
case. Lets just make the assumption of add_memory_driver_managed()
that it is the driver's responsibility to mark the range busy before
calling, and the driver's responsibility to release the region. I.e.
validate (rather than request) that the range is busy in
register_memory_resource(), and teach release_memory_resource() to
skip releasing the region when the memory is marked driver managed.
That would let dax_kmem drop its manipulation of the 'busy' flag which
is a layering violation no matter how many comments we put around it.
