-What: /sys/devices/system/memory
-Date: June 2008
-Contact: Badari Pulavarty <pbadari@us.ibm.com>
-Description:
- The /sys/devices/system/memory contains a snapshot of the
- internal state of the kernel memory blocks. Files could be
- added or removed dynamically to represent hot-add/remove
- operations.

-What: /sys/devices/system/memory/memoryX/removable
-Date: June 2008
-Contact: Badari Pulavarty <pbadari@us.ibm.com>
-Description:
- The file /sys/devices/system/memory/memoryX/removable
- indicates whether this memory block is removable or not.
- This is useful for a user-level agent to determine
- identify removable sections of the memory before attempting
- potentially expensive hot-remove memory operation

-What: /sys/devices/system/memory/memoryX/phys_device
-Date: September 2008
-Contact: Badari Pulavarty <pbadari@us.ibm.com>
-Description:
- The file /sys/devices/system/memory/memoryX/phys_device
- is read-only and is designed to show the name of physical
- memory device. Implementation is currently incomplete.

-What: /sys/devices/system/memory/memoryX/phys_index
-Date: September 2008
-Contact: Badari Pulavarty <pbadari@us.ibm.com>
-Description:
- The file /sys/devices/system/memory/memoryX/phys_index
- is read-only and contains the section ID in hexadecimal
- which is equivalent to decimal X contained in the
- memory section directory name.

-What: /sys/devices/system/memory/memoryX/state
-Date: September 2008
-Contact: Badari Pulavarty <pbadari@us.ibm.com>
-Description:
- The file /sys/devices/system/memory/memoryX/state
- is read-write. When read, its contents show the
- online/offline state of the memory section. When written,
- root can toggle the the online/offline state of a removable
- memory section (see removable file description above)
- using the following commands.
- # echo online > /sys/devices/system/memory/memoryX/state
- # echo offline > /sys/devices/system/memory/memoryX/state
-
- For example, if /sys/devices/system/memory/memory22/removable
- contains a value of 1 and
- /sys/devices/system/memory/memory22/state contains the
- string "online" the following command can be executed by
- by root to offline that section.
- # echo offline > /sys/devices/system/memory/memory22/state

-What: /sys/devices/system/memoryX/nodeY
-Date: October 2009
-Contact: Linux Memory Management list <linux-mm@kvack.org>
-Description:
- When CONFIG_NUMA is enabled, a symbolic link that
- points to the corresponding NUMA node directory.
-
- For example, the following symbolic link is created for
- memory section 9 on node0:
- /sys/devices/system/memory/memory9/node0 -> ../../node/node0

-Date: September 2008
-Contact: Gary Hade <garyhade@us.ibm.com>
-Description:
- When CONFIG_NUMA is enabled
- /sys/devices/system/node/nodeX/memoryY is a symbolic link that
- points to the corresponding /sys/devices/system/memory/memoryY
- memory section directory. For example, the following symbolic
- link is created for memory section 9 on node0.
- /sys/devices/system/node/node0/memory9 -> ../../memory/memory9
