I'm sending two patches for review and passing upstream. The basic idea
is that these patches put in place some macros such that memory
management can be easily split into pre and post boot. This is based on
the work of Mike Kravetz and Dave Hansen. It should be harmless, as the
new macros are currently defined to the same thing the old macros were.
It is also isolated to ppc64 files, so the other arch guys don't need
Ultimatly my motivation is to move toward hotplug memory. Acceptance of
these patches will allow us to carry smaller patches out of mainline and
ease our development greatly.
Comments/feedback/flames welcome. Patches against 2.6.9-rc3 and have
been boot tested on Power5 LPAR.
