      mm: add numa node symlink for memory section in sysfs · dee5d0d5
      Alex Chiang authored
      Commit c04fc586
      
       (mm: show node to memory section relationship with
      symlinks in sysfs) created symlinks from nodes to memory sections, e.g.
      
      /sys/devices/system/node/node1/memory135 -> ../../memory/memory135
      
      If you're examining the memory section though and are wondering what node
      it might belong to, you can find it by grovelling around in sysfs, but
      it's a little cumbersome.
      
      Add a reverse symlink for each memory section that points back to the
      node to which it belongs.

      Show node to memory section relationship with symlinks in sysfs
      
      Add /sys/devices/system/node/nodeX/memoryY symlinks for all
      the memory sections located on nodeX.  For example:
      /sys/devices/system/node/node1/memory135 -> ../../memory/memory135
      indicates that memory section 135 resides on node1.
      
      Also revises documentation to cover this change as well as updating
      Documentation/ABI/testing/sysfs-devices-memory to include descriptions
      of memory hotremove files 'phys_device', 'phys_index', and 'state'
      that were previously not described there.
      
      In addition to it always being a good policy to provide users with
      the maximum possible amount of physical location information for
      resources that can be hot-added and/or hot-removed, the following
      are some (but likely not all) of the user benefits provided by
      this change.
      Immediate:
        - Provides information needed to determine the specific node
          on which a defective DIMM is located.  This will reduce system
          downtime when the node or defective DIMM is swapped out.
        - Prevents unintended onlining of a memory section that was
          previously offlined due to a defective DIMM.  This could happen
          during node hot-add when the user or node hot-add assist script
          onlines _all_ offlined sections due to user or script inability
          to identify the specific memory sections located on the hot-added
          node.  The consequences of reintroducing the defective memory
          could be ugly.
        - Provides information needed to vary the amount and distribution
          of memory on specific nodes for testing or debugging purposes.
      Future:
        - Will provide information needed to identify the memory
          sections that need to be offlined prior to physical removal
          of a specific node.
      
      Symlink creation during boot was tested on 2-node x86_64, 2-node
      ppc64, and 2-node ia64 systems.  Symlink creation during physical
      memory hot-add tested on a 2-node x86_64 system.
