[PATCH 00/16] Remove the direct map

From: Hongyan Xia <hongyxia@xxxxxxxxxx>

This series depends on Xen page table domheap conversion:

After breaking the reliance on the direct map to manipulate Xen page
tables, we can now finally remove the direct map altogether.

This series:
- fixes many places that use the direct map incorrectly or assume the
  presence of an always-mapped direct map in a wrong way.
- includes the early vmap patches for global mappings.
- initialises the mapcache for all domains, disables the fast path that
  uses the direct map for mappings.
- maps and unmaps xenheap on-demand.
- adds a boot command line switch to enable or disable the direct map.

This previous version was in RFC state and can be found here:
which has since been broken into small series.

Hongyan Xia (12):
  acpi: vmap pages in acpi_os_alloc_memory
  x86/numa: vmap the pages for memnodemap
  x86/srat: vmap the pages for acpi_slit
  x86: map/unmap pages in restore_all_guests.
  x86/pv: rewrite how building PV dom0 handles domheap mappings
  x86/mapcache: initialise the mapcache for the idle domain
  x86: add a boot option to enable and disable the direct map
  x86/domain_page: remove the fast paths when mfn is not in the
  xen/page_alloc: add a path for xenheap when there is no direct map
  x86/setup: leave early boot slightly earlier
  x86/setup: vmap heap nodes when they are outside the direct map
  x86/setup: do not create valid mappings when directmap=no

Wei Liu (4):
  x86/setup: move vm_init() before acpi calls
  x86/pv: domheap pages should be mapped while relocating initrd
  x86: add Persistent Map (PMAP) infrastructure
  x86: lift mapcache variable to the arch level
