SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/1] arm64: make section size configurable for memory hotplug
From
Date
Hi Sudershan,

This patch (and the cover letter) does not copy LAKML even though the
entire change here is arm64 specific. Please do copy all applicable
mailing lists for a given patch.

Section size has always been decided by the platform. It cannot be a
configurable option because the user would not know the constraints
for memory representation on the platform and besides it also cannot
be trusted.

28 would not work for 64K pages.

There was an inconclusive discussion regarding this last month.

I have been wondering if this would solve the problem for 4K page size
config which requires PMD mapping for the vmemmap mapping while making
section size bits dependent on max order. But this has not been tested
properly.
