[Xen-devel] [PATCH] libxc: use correct macro when unmapping memory after save operation

With some help from Olaf, I've finally got to the bottom of an issue I
came across while trying to implement save/restore in the libvirt
libxenlight driver.  After issuing the save operation, the saved domain
was not being cleaned up properly and left in this state from xl's

xen33:# xl list
Name                   ID   Mem VCPUs      State   Time(s)
Domain-0                0  6821     8     r-----     122.5
(null)                  2     2     2     --pssd      10.8

Checking the libvirtd /proc/$pid/maps I found this

7f3798984000-7f3798b86000 r--s 00002000 00:03 4026532097 /proc/xen/privcmd

So not all all pages belonging to the domain were unmapped from
libvirtd.  In tools/libxc/xc_domain_save.c we found that P2M_FL_ENTRIES
were being mapped but only P2M_FLL_ENTRIES were being unmapped.  The
attached patch changes the unmapping to use the same P2M_FL_ENTRIES
macro.  I'm not too familiar with this code though so posting here for

I suspect this was not noticed before since most (all?) processes doing
save terminate after the save and are not long-running like libvirtd.
