[Xen-devel] [PATCH v4 0/2] make ballooned out pages have a valid mapping at all times

Hi all,
this patch series limits problems caused by tcp retransmits on NFS when
the original block pages were mapped from a foreign domain and now the
mapping is gone.

It accomplishes the goal by:

1) mapping all ballooned out pages to a per-cpu "balloon_scratch_page";
2) making sure that once a grant is unmapped, the original mapping to
the per-cpu balloon_scratch_page is restored atomically.

The first patch accomplishes (1), the second patch uses
GNTTABOP_unmap_and_replace to atomically unmap a grant and restore the
original mapping.

Changes in this version:
- add an early_initcall to clear all the possible per_cpu

Stefano Stabellini (2):
      xen/balloon: set a mapping for ballooned out pages
      xen/m2p: use GNTTABOP_unmap_and_replace to reinstate the original mapping
