Heterogeneous Memory Management v20 Published
Jerome has wanted HMM in Linux 4.12 (after previously pushing for it in 4.11) but it has yet to be pulled into the -next tree and 4.11 is potentially being released this weekend. Version 20 of the HMM patches were published overnight.
HMM v20 limits this feature to x86_64 Linux, contains various fixes, and the code is now re-based on top of the recent memory hot-plugging rework.
HMM is looking more and more ready, but given the timing, unless it's added last minute will likely be punted off to Linux 4.13. Those wanting to check out this 3,400 lines of new kernel code can find them via this patch series. At least when it arrives, it should be very useful for GPGPU applications.
