Re: [Patch ARM] Turn on hot cold partitioning ?

OK, thanks for the update. partitioning would be very important for my
current work so I'd like to understand what is so special with ARM that
it's the only target that can't achieve that (on the V7 at least ).
Christophe, Mathew, did you have a test case (I don't have a direct
access to the Linaro archives) ?

Thanks a lot,
