Hi, Jes

I'm now writing a patch and want your comments .

(*)This patches add information to Reserved pages using page->private field.

I think pages markd with PG_uncached are not managed by alloc_pages()/free_pages().
So, instead of using PG_uncached, using (*) and reserved as "reserved_uncached" can
work enough, I think.

"Allocating and isolating" method cannot work with memory-hotplug stuff.

Can this patch work with your mspec ?

[1/3] function for naming pages using page->private
[2/3] name reserved_at_boot pages
[3/3] name reserved_uncached pages
