Subject[PATCH v2 04/25] mm: enhance region_is_ram() to distinguish 'unknown' vs 'mixed'
From
Date
region_is_ram() is used to prevent the establishment of aliased mappings
to physical "System RAM" with incompatible cache settings. However, it
uses "-1" to indicate both "unknown" memory ranges (ranges not described
by platform firmware) and "mixed" ranges (where the parameters describe
a range that partially overlaps "System RAM").

Fix this up by explicitly tracking the "unknown" vs "mixed" resource
cases. In addition to clarifying that "-1" means the requested spanned
RAM and non-RAM resource, this re-write also adds support for detecting
when the requested range completely covers all of a resource.

Finally, the implementation treats overlaps between "unknown" and RAM as
RAM.
