Abstract

IA-64 is Intel Corporation's recently released 64-bit architecture. It includes features such as data/control speculation, instruction predication and a large number of parallel resources. Also included is a novel memory management unit that allows orthogonal translation and protection mechanisms to be used. This flexibility opens up opportunities for improved memory management techniques. This paper presents our enhancements to IA-64 Linux memory management with focus on improving effective TLB coverage.
