Subject[PATCH v2 0/3] resource: Use list_head to link sibling resource
This post mainly converts strut resource's sibling list from singly
linked list to doubly linked list, list_head. This is suggested by
Andrew. Since I need a reversed searching on iomem_resource's
IORESOURCE_SYSTEM_RAM children, the old singly linked list way makes
the code in v1 post really ugly.

With this change, we only need one simple list_for_each_entry_reverse()
to do reversed iteration on sibling list. The relevant codes in
kernel/resource.c are more readable since those dazzling pointer
operation codes for singly linked list are replaced.

With the help of list_head, in patch 0002 we can have a very simple
walk_system_ram_res_rev(). And in patch 0003, will use it to search
available system RAM region for kexec_buffer of kexec_file from top to
down, just like we have been doing all along in kexec loading which is
done in kexec-tools utility.

This patchset passed testing on my kvm guest, x86_64 arch with network
enabling. The thing we need pay attetion to is that a root resource's
child member need be initialized specifically with LIST_HEAD_INIT() if
sttically defined or INIT_LIST_HEAD() for dynamically definition. Here
Just like we do for iomem_resource/ioport_resource, or the change in

And there are two places of change I am not very sure. One is in
drivers/hv/vmbus_drv.c, the other is in drivers/pci/host/vmd.c. So will
invite experts on these areas to help review.

Use list_head instead to link resource siblings. This is suggested by

Rewrite walk_system_ram_res_rev() after list_head is taken to link
resouce siblings.

resource: add walk_system_ram_res_rev()
