mm,migration: Do not try to migrate unmapped anonymous pages
On 02/18/2010 01:02 PM, Mel Gorman wrote: rmap_walk_anon() was triggering errors in memory compaction that looks like use-after-free errors in anon_vma. The problem appears to be that between the page being isolated from the LRU and rcu_read_lock() being taken, the mapcount of the page dropped to 0 and the ... 19 Feb 2010 12:06

[PATCH 04/11] KVM: SVM: Sync all control registers on nested vmexit
Currently the vmexit emulation does not sync control registers were the access is typically intercepted by the nested hypervisor. But we can not count on that intercepts to sync these registers too and make the code architecturally more correct.

[PATCH 05/11] KVM: SVM: Annotate nested_svm_map with might_sleep()
The nested_svm_map() function can sleep and must not be called from atomic context. So annotate that function.

[PATCH 02/11] KVM: SVM: Fix wrong interrupt injection in enable_irq_windows
The nested_svm_intr() function does not execute the vmexit anymore. Therefore we may still be in the nested state after that function ran. This patch changes the nested_svm_intr() function to return wether the irq window could be enabled. Cc: stable(a)kernel.org Signed-off-by: Joerg Roedel <joerg.roedel(a)amd.com> ... 19 Feb 2010 10:58
