Subject[Patch V4 00/16] xen: support pv-domains larger than 512GB
Support 64 bit pv-domains with more than 512GB of memory.

Tested with 64 bit dom0 on machines with 8GB and 1TB and 32 bit dom0 on a
8GB machine. Conflicts between E820 map and different hypervisor populated
memory areas have been tested via a fake E820 map reserved area on the
8GB machine.

Changes in V4:
- new patch 13 (add explicit memblock_reserve() calls for special pages)

Changes in V3:
- rename xen_chk_e820_reserved() to xen_is_e820_reserved() as requested by
David Vrabel
- add __initdata tag to global variables in patch 10
- move initrd conflict checking after reserving p2m memory (patch 11)

Changes in V2:
- some clarifications and better explanations in commit messages
- add header changes of include/xen/interface/xen.h (patch 01)
- add wmb() when incrementing p2m_generation (patch 02)
- add new patch 03 (don't build mfn tree if tools don't need it)
- add new patch 06 (split counting of extra memory pages from remapping)
- add new patch 07 (check memory area against e820 map)
- replace early_iounmap() with early_memunmap() (patch 07->patch 08)
- rework patch 09 (check for kernel memory conflicting with memory layout)
- rework patch 10 (check pre-allocated page tables for conflict with memory map)
- combine old patches 08 and 11 into patch 11
- add new patch 12 (provide early_memremap_ro to establish read-only mapping)
- rework old patch 12 (if p2m list located in to be remapped region delay
remapping) to copy p2m list in case of a conflict (now patch 13)
- correct Kconfig dependency (patch 13->14)
- don't limit dom0 to 512GB (patch 13->14)
- modify parameter parsing to work in very early boot (patch 13->14)
- add new patch 15 to do some cleanup
- remove old patch 05 (simplify xen_set_identity_and_remap() by using global
- remove old patch 08 (detect pre-allocated memory interfering with e820 map)

Juergen Gross (16):
xen: sync with xen headers
xen: save linear p2m list address in shared info structure
xen: don't build mfn tree if tools don't need it
xen: eliminate scalability issues from initial mapping setup
xen: move static e820 map to global scope
xen: split counting of extra memory pages from remapping
xen: check memory area against e820 map
xen: find unused contiguous memory area
xen: check for kernel memory conflicting with memory layout
xen: check pre-allocated page tables for conflict with memory map
xen: check for initrd conflicting with e820 map
mm: provide early_memremap_ro to establish read-only mapping
xen: add explicit memblock_reserve() calls for special pages
xen: move p2m list if conflicting with e820 map
xen: allow more than 512 GB of RAM for 64 bit pv-domains
xen: remove no longer needed p2m.h
