[PATCH] dell_rbu: Adding BIOS memory floor support
This patch has the changes to support the memory floor fix done in Dell BIOS. The BIOS incase of packet update mechanism would not accept packet placed in memory below a cretain address. This address is by default 128K but can change. The driver now can accept the memory floor if the user chooses to make it will try to allocate contiguous physical memory above the memory floor by allocating a set of packets till a valid memory allocation is made. All the allocates then are freed. This repeats for everty packet. This patch was created by Michael E Brown and has been tested on 2.6.14-rc5 Signed-of-by: Michael E Brown <Michael_E_Brown@Dell.com> Signed-off-by: Abhay Salunke <abhay_salunke@dell.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
