    x86/mm/mtrr: Remove kernel internal MTRR interfaces: unexport mtrr_add() and mtrr_del() · 2baa891e
    Luis R. Rodriguez authored
    The effort to replace mtrr_add() with architecture agnostic
    arch_phys_wc_add() is complete, this will ensure write-combining
    implementations (PAT on x86) is taken advantage instead of using
    MTRR. With the effort done now, hide direct MTRR access for
    The legacy user-space /proc/mtrr ABI is not affected.
    Update x86 documentation on MTRR to reflect the completion of
    the phasing out of direct access to MTRR, also add a note on
    platform firmware code use of MTRRs based on the obituary
    discussion of MTRRs on Linux [0].
