bootmem: clean up arch-specific bootmem wrapping
Impact: cleaner and consistent bootmem wrapping By setting CONFIG_HAVE_ARCH_BOOTMEM_NODE, archs can define arch-specific wrappers for bootmem allocation. However, this is done a bit strangely in that only the high level convenience macros can be changed while lower level, but still exported, interface functions can't be wrapped. This not only is messy but also leads to strange situation where alloc_bootmem() does what the arch wants it to do but the equivalent __alloc_bootmem() call doesn't although they should be able to be used interchangeably. This patch updates bootmem such that archs can override / wrap the backend function - alloc_bootmem_core() instead of the highlevel interface functions to allow simpler and consistent wrapping. Also, HAVE_ARCH_BOOTMEM_NODE is renamed to HAVE_ARCH_BOOTMEM. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <> Cc: Johannes Weiner <>
