[Xen-devel] [PATCH 0/3] x86: remove x86_init.mapping.pagetable_reserve

Currently find_early_table_space calculates an overestimate of how much
memory the pagetable for 1:1 mapping is going to need. After
kernel_physical_mapping_init completes we know exactly how much memory
we used so we memblock reserve only the used memory and "free" the rest.

This patch series modifies find_early_table_space to calculate the exact
amount of memory we need for the 1:1 mapping, so that we can memblock
reverve it right away and we don't need to free the unused memory after

At this point we can also safely revert "x86,xen: introduce

The list of patches with diffstat follows:

      x86: calculate precisely the memory needed by init_memory_mapping
      Revert "x86,xen: introduce x86_init.mapping.pagetable_reserve"
      x86: move memblock_x86_reserve_range PGTABLE to find_early_table_space
