Heterogeneous Memory Management Isn't Ready For Linux 4.11
Andrew Morton said this week he will take a "serious look after -rc1" regarding the state of Heterogeneous Memory Management to see then whether he will pull it for Linux 4.12. If you don't know what HMM is all about, see this earlier article.
This work is rather interesting and will cooperate with future NVIDIA GPU drivers on Pascal hardware -- NVIDIA has support readied but unreleased in their proprietary driver to use HMM and they are also prepping open-source support for Nouveau. At least now with HMM not ready for Linux 4.11, hopefully we'll see the Nouveau usage in time for 4.12 too.
John Hubbard of NVIDIA has commented on the kernel mailing list following this latest discussion of merging HMM. He mentions that Jerome has continued working on bug fixes, some more feature additions, and other improvements to the code. NVIDIA developers continue doing a lot of testing with this HMM Linux support.
