this patch was inspired by this post of yours:


Unfortunately, this rewrite never happened, so I took the liberty of
overtaking the job. I hope you don't mind.

This is in fact a preparatory series to add hugepage support without
having to care about the appropriate size of the cyclic buffer.

* v2:
  - Keep excluded regions per mem_map_data
  - Process excluded pages in chunks

Petr Tesarik (3):
  Pass mmd pointer to __exclude_unnecessary_pages
  Generic handling of multi-page exclusions
  Get rid of overrun adjustments
