It is the usual accumulation of nonsense. We have
#define ITS_MAX_LPI_NRBITS 16
which is not necessarily what the HW exposes
#define PENDTABLE_MAX_SZ ALIGN(BIT(ITS_MAX_LPI_NRBITS), SZ_64K)
The *base* of the pending table has to be 64kB aligned, but not its
size. Yes, that's a helpful shortcut, but that's still wrong.
#define PROPTABLE_MAX_SZ ALIGN(BIT(ITS_MAX_LPI_NRBITS) / 8, SZ_64K)
This 64kB alignment is silly, specially considering the hardcoding of
the number of ID bits.
#define GIC_LPI_SIZE ALIGN(cpu_numcores() * PENDTABLE_MAX_SZ + \
This 1MB alignment doesn't exist. Convenience again?
And then this patch adds some bizarre alignment for reasons that have
nothing to do with the GIC, but because there is so other reservations
this steps on, which probably means that the allocator is doing
The whole thing needs reworking from first principle, at which point
it will become clearer what this is trying to do.
Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.
