Thread-topic: kmalloc question
Is kmalloc (GFP_KERNEL) on a 32 bit HIGHMEM enabled MIPS kernel (BCM/Sibyte 
processor) guaranteed to allocate memory from the low, KSEG0/1 addressible 
region? I'm having trouble sorting through the slab.c code. On this processor, 
only 256 MB of DRAM is directly addressible; with more than 256 MB of RAM, 
there is 256 MB in zone 0, and the remainder in zone 2. Zone 1 is empty.

Thanks,
sf
