RE: [Xen-devel] Error restoring DomU when using GPLPV
Before we close down this thread, I have a concern:
According to Mukesh, the fix to this bug is dependent
on the pv drivers tracking tot_pages for a domain
and ballooning to ensure tot_pages+3 does not exceed
max_pages for the domain.
Well, tmem can affect tot_pages for a domain inside
the hypervisor without any notification to pv drivers
or the balloon driver. And I'd imagine that PoD and
future memory optimization mechanisms such as
swapping and page-sharing may do the same.
So this solution seems very fragile.
