I think it's a de facto standard that type 12 means "nvdimm". I don't think there's any kind of standard as to whether that means that it's permissible to touch that memory or that nvdimm means type 12. I have no problem w/ the resource name saying "nvdimm", but I do object to autoloading anything as a result. (There is no type 12 on EFI, nor will there ever be, since there is no e820 at all on EFI.) --Andy > > -hpa > -- Andy Lutomirski AMA Capital Management, LLC -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html Please read the FAQ at http://www.tux.org/lkml/
