SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/2] cleanup e820_setup_gap
From
Date
Here is the patch based on tip/master

Please have a look

--

This is a preparatory patch for the next patch in series.
Moves some code from e820_setup_gap to a new function e820_search_gap.
This patch is a part of a bug fix where we walk the ACPI table to calculate
a gap for PCI optional devices.
