I /was/ about to say that I would pull in the first two patches, but now
I can't get xfs to mount with pmem at all, and have no way of testing
# echo 'file drivers/dax/* +p' > /sys/kernel/debug/dynamic_debug/control
# mount /dev/pmem3 -o rtdev=/dev/pmem4,dax /mnt
SGI XFS with ACLs, security attributes, realtime, scrub, debug enabled
XFS (pmem3): DAX enabled. Warning: EXPERIMENTAL, use at your own risk
pmem3: error: dax support not enabled
pmem4: error: dax support not enabled
XFS (pmem3): DAX unsupported by block device. Turning off DAX.
XFS (pmem3): Mounting V5 Filesystem
XFS (pmem3): Ending clean mount
Evidently the pfn it picks up is missing PFN_MAP in flags because
ND_REGION_PAGEMAP isn't set, and looking at the kernel source, pmem that
comes in via NFIT never gets that set...?
relevant qemu pmem options:
(repeat for five more devices)
What does "ndctl list" say? The namespaces need to be in fsdax mode.
