Hi Jason,
The idea was to add an easy way to validate the codepaths touched by this
patch series, which make modifications to the migration helpers for device
generic type pages. We're using CONFIG_EFI_FAKE_MEMMAP to create fake SPM
devices inside system memory. No special HW needed. And passing the kernel
parameter efi_fake_mem. Ex. efi_fake_mem=1G at 0x100000000:0x40000. I should
probably need to include a small example of how to set this in the
