I need to mapped all (reduce size of highmem) the memory with kernel. but my default boot log is as below.

"Memory: 1222984K/1446656K available (10240K kernel code, 2287K rwdata, 3232K rodata, 2048K init, 497K bss, 190904K reserved, 32768K cma-reserved, 805632K highmem)"

How/where highmem value is define ?

What is default value ?

 Total DRAM : 2GB

Response is appreciated.

Regards,

Pankaj

Hi Pankaj

one can check linux documentation:

Documentation - linux-imx - i.MX Linux kernel 

memory.txt\arm\Documentation - linux-imx - i.MX Linux kernel 

highmem.txt\vm\Documentation - linux-imx - i.MX Linux kernel

Hi Igor,

Thanks for your quick response.

I have changed my CONFIG_VMSPLIT  option to 2G/2G.(from 3G/1G).

Now Highmem Value is changed, So my question is how it is calculated ?

and now i am getting following Error in log :

[    5.795087] ueventd: Coldboot took 0.106 seconds
[    5.804560] init: wait for '/dev/.coldboot_done' took 50ms

Any Idea about above error ?
