Description George Beshers 2007-01-05 17:04:24 UTC
Description of problem:
  The change from discontig to sparsemem undercut Jes's
  upstream patch to show_mem().  A new patch is now in the
  -mm tree awaiting a move to Linus' tree.

  The importance of this patch is that it provides more information
  about NUMA memory in a form that is more compact than the original
  discontig.c:show_mem().  It should be noted that this is one of
  the few ways of getting at this information when an error occurs
  in the field.

Will post to rhkernel-list when it goes into Linus' tree.

Comment 7 Luming Yu 2007-08-27 13:25:43 UTC
The patch at comment#1 has been in upstream
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commitdiff;h=f1c0afa2e8802c01cf82c915e2bb3cb2a81570d4

Is it reasonable to post the back port again?

Do you agree to re-post?

Yes, I will re-post; 5.1 testing is winding down.
