Physical memory hotadd has to allocate a memmap (struct page array) for
the newly added memory section. Currently, alloc_pages_node() is used
for those allocations.

This has some disadvantages:
 a) an existing memory is consumed for that purpose
    (eg: ~2MB per 128MB memory section on x86_64)
 b) if the whole node is movable then we have off-node struct pages
    which has performance drawbacks.
 c) It might be there are no PMD_ALIGNED chunks so memmap array gets
    populated with base pages.

This can be improved when CONFIG_SPARSEMEM_VMEMMAP is enabled.

Vmemap page tables can map arbitrary memory.
That means that we can simply use the beginning of each memory section and
map struct pages there.
struct pages which back the allocated space then just need to be treated
carefully.

Implementation wise we will reuse vmem_altmap infrastructure to override
the default allocator used by __populate_section_memmap.
Part of the implementation also relies on memory_block structure gaining
a new field which specifies the number of vmemmap_pages at the beginning.
This patch also introduces the following functions:

 - mhp_init_memmap_on_memory:
		       Initializes vmemmap pages by calling move_pfn_range_to_zone(),
		       calls kasan_add_zero_shadow(), and onlines as many sections
		       as vmemmap pages fully span.
 - mhp_deinit_memmap_on_memory:
		       Undoes what mhp_init_memmap_on_memory.

The new function memory_block_online() calls mhp_init_memmap_on_memory() before
doing the actual online_pages(). Should online_pages() fail, we clean up
by calling mhp_deinit_memmap_on_memory().
Adjusting of present_pages is done at the end once we know that online_pages()
succedeed.

On offline, memory_block_offline() needs to unaccount vmemmap pages from
present_pages() before calling offline_pages().
This is necessary because offline_pages() tears down some structures based
on the fact whether the node or the zone become empty.
If offline_pages() fails, we account back vmemmap pages.
If it succeeds, we call mhp_deinit_memmap_on_memory().

Hot-remove:

 We need to be careful when removing memory, as adding and
 removing memory needs to be done with the same granularity.
 To check that this assumption is not violated, we check the
 memory range we want to remove and if a) any memory block has
 vmemmap pages and b) the range spans more than a single memory
 block, we scream out loud and refuse to proceed.

 If all is good and the range was using memmap on memory (aka vmemmap pages),
 we construct an altmap structure so free_hugepage_table does the right
 thing and calls vmem_altmap_free instead of free_pagetable.

I would extend this slightly. This can even lead to extreme cases where
system goes OOM because the physically hotplugged memory depletes the
available memory before it is onlined.

Again this can be confusing because this is not what is really happening
in practice because we are going to have a multisection memory block
where all sections will be backed by a common reserved space rather than
per section sparse space. I would go with

"
Vmemap page tables can map arbitrary memory. That means that we can
reserve a part of the physically hotadded memory to back vmemmap page
tables. This implementation uses the beggining of the hotplugged memory
for that purpose.

There is quite a large leap from __populate_section_memmap to the
memory_block that deserves explaining to not lose all the subtle things
discussed in the past. I think it should be made clear why all the fuzz.
I would structure it as follows:
"
There are some non-obiously things to consider though.  Vmemmap
pages are allocated/freed during the memory hotplug events
(add_memory_resource, try_remove_memory) when the memory is
added/removed. This means that the reserved physical range is not online
yet it is used. The most obvious side effect is that pfn_to_online_page
returns NULL for those pfns. The current design expects that this
should be OK as the hotplugged memory is considered a garbage until it
is onlined. For example hibernation wouldn't save the content of those
vmmemmaps into the image so it wouldn't be restored on resume but this
should be OK as there no real content to recover anyway while metadata
is reachable from other data structures (e.g. vmemmap page tables).

The reserved space is therefore (de)initialized during the {on,off}line
events (mhp_{de}init_memmap_on_memory). That is done by extracting page
allocator independent initialization from the regular onlining path.
The primary reason to handle the reserved space outside of {on,off}line_pages
is to make each initialization specific to the purpose rather than
special case them in a single function.

I believe we do not need to check for nr_pages as the actual operation
will never run out of range in practice but the code is more subtle than
necessary. Using two different iteration styles is also hurting the code
readability. I would go with the following
	for (pfn = start_pfn; pfn < end_pfn; ) {
		unsigned long order = min(MAX_ORDER - 1UL, __ffs(pfn));

		while (start + (1UL << order) > end_pfn)
                        order--;
		(*online_page_callback)(pfn_to_page(pfn), pageblock_order);
		pfn += 1 << order;
	}

which is what __free_pages_memory does already.

I have to say I still dislike this and I would just wrap it inside out
and do the operation from within walk_memory_blocks but I will not
insist.

Yeah, I thought I fixed that, it should have been "That means that we can simply

Ok, that definitely adds a valuable information.

If you mean that IS_ALIGNED(pfn, MAX_ORDER_NR_PAGES) can go, that is not
right.
Of course, with your changes below it would not be necesary.

this is kinda what I used to have in the early versions, but it was agreed
with David to split it in two loops to make it explicit.
I can go back to that if it is preferred.

I have to confess I forgot about the details of that dicussion, as we were
quite focused on decoupling vmemmap pages from {online,offline} interface.
Would you mind elaborating a bit more?

Not that I would insist but I find it better to use common constructs
when it doesn't hurt readability. The order evaluation can be even done
in a trivial helper.

As I've said I will not insist and this can be done in the follow up.
You are iterating over memory blocks just to refuse to do an operation
which can be split to several memory blocks. See
http://lkml.kernel.org/r/YFtPxH0CT5QZsnR1@dhcp22.suse.cz and follow
walk_memory_blocks(start, size, NULL, remove_memory_block_cb)

We'll have to be careful in general when removing memory in different 
granularity than it was added, especially calling arch_remove_memory() 
in smaller granularity than it was added via arch_add_memory(). We might 
fail to tear down the direct map, imagine having mapped a 1GiB page but 
decide to remove individual 128 MiB chunks -- that won't work and the 
direct map would currently remain.

So this should be handled separately in the future.

Uhm, I will have a look how it looks.
Maybe with a nice comment explaining what is going on can make it in.
If not, I can always keep what we have atm.

Ok, thanks for the link.
I will have a look, but I would rather do it as a follow-up.

Agreed but I am not referring to arbitrary hotremove path. All I am
pointing at is to split up to memory blocks and do the same kind of work
on each separately. Partial failures might turn out to be more tricky
and as I've said I do not insist on doing that right now but it is a bit
weird to outright fail the operation even when in fact there are more
blocks to be hot removed in once.

Agreed. But we should also focus on what actual users need to see if 
it's worth the trouble (I know of none that will be using memmap_on_memory).
