During boot time there are certain instructions run from something like x86/mm as shown in the image. I was wondering if anyone knew what they were and is it a file system dependent instruction?enter image description here


Those are messages from the memory-management layer. They’re not file system-related. “mm” in the kernel generally refers to memory management, and “x86” refers to the x86 architecture (which combines 32- and 64-bit support). The messages are architecture-specific (similar messages exist on ARM).
