Subject[PATCH 02/10] mm, x86: Remove region_is_ram() call from ioremap
From
Date
From: Toshi Kani <toshi.kani@hp.com>

__ioremap_caller() calls region_is_ram() to walk through the
iomem_resource table to check if a target range is in RAM, which
was added to improve the lookup performance over page_is_ram()
(commit 906e36c5c717 "x86: use optimized ioresource lookup in
ioremap function"). page_is_ram() was no longer used when this
change was added, though.

__ioremap_caller() then calls walk_system_ram_range(), which had
replaced page_is_ram() to improve the lookup performance (commit
c81c8a1eeede "x86, ioremap: Speed up check for RAM pages").

Since both checks walk through the same iomem_resource table for
the same purpose, there is no need to call the two functions.
Furthermore, region_is_ram() always returns with -1, which makes
walk_system_ram_range() as the only check being used at this point.

Therefore, this patch changes __ioremap_caller() to call
walk_system_ram_range() only.

Note, removing the call to region_is_ram() is also necessary to
fix bugs in region_is_ram(). walk_system_ram_range() requires
RAM ranges be page-aligned in the iomem_resource table to work
properly. This restriction has allowed multiple ioremaps to RAM
(setup_data) which are page-unaligned. Using fixed region_is_ram()
will cause these callers to start failing. After all ioremap
callers to setup_data are converted, __ioremap_caller() may call
region_is_ram() instead to remove this restriction.
