Remove 'recurse into child resources' logic from 'reserve_region_with_split()'
Linus Torvalds [Sun, 19 Apr 2009 04:44:24 +0000 (21:44 -0700)]
This function is not actually used right now, since the original use
case for it was done with insert_resource_expand_to_fit() instead.

However, we now have another usage case that wants to basically do a
"reserve IO resource, splitting around existing resources", however that
one doesn't actually want the "recurse into the conflicting resource"
logic at all.

And since recursing into the conflicting resource was the most complex
part, and isn't wanted, just remove it.  Maybe we'll some day want both
versions, but we can just resurrect the logic then.
