Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 221612
ia64: show_mem() for sparsemem NUMA
Last modified: 2008-05-21 10:40:35 EDT
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.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Will post to rhkernel-list when it goes into Linus' tree.
