[PATCH v5 00/12] KVM: Add host swap event notifications for PV guest
KVM virtualizes guest memory by means of shadow pages or HW assistance like NPT/EPT. Not all memory used by a guest is mapped into the guest address space or even present in a host memory at any given time. When vcpu tries to access memory page that is not mapped into the guest address space KVM is notified about i... 19 Jul 2010 12:27
[PATCH v5 11/12] Let host know whether the guest can handle async PF in non-userspace context.
If guest can detect that it runs in non-preemptable context it can handle async PFs at any time, so let host know that it can send async PF even if guest cpu is not in userspace.

[PATCH v5 09/12] Retry fault before vmentry
When page is swapped in it is mapped into guest memory only after guest tries to access it again and generate another fault. To save this fault we can map it immediately since we know that guest is going to access the page.

[PATCH v5 10/12] Handle async PF in non preemptable context
If async page fault is received by idle task or when preemp_count is not zero guest cannot reschedule, so do sti; hlt and wait for page to be ready. vcpu can still process interrupts while it waits for the page to be ready.

[PATCH v5 01/12] Move kvm_smp_prepare_boot_cpu() from kvmclock.c to kvm.c.
