Re: [XenPPC] [RFC] 64mb Chunk Allocator

On Jun 26, 2006, at 4:41 PM, Dan E Poff wrote:

When starting a domain, provide a single aligned chunk for the beginning of real memory. Additional memory would be provided using 'traditional xen' allocation mechanisms. The initial chunk would come from free memory, if available. Otherwise the chunk would be 'created' by 'migrating pages' away from the chunk, transparently. Such a page migration facility would also be useful for memory 'hot- unplug'.

Agreed, but for now I just want to be able to allocate and free a chunk so we can start properly creating and destroying 64M/RMA only domains. This can help us get to the next level and introduce you to enough stuff to really get creative.
