[Xen-devel] [PATCH v7 02/10] arch/arm: add consistency check to REMOVE p2m changes

Currently, the REMOVE case of the switch in apply_p2m_changes()
does not perform any consistency check on the mapping to be removed.
More in detail, the code does not check if the guest address to be
unmapped is actually mapped to the machine address given as a
This commit attempts to add the above-described consistency check
to the REMOVE path of apply_p2m_changes(). This is instrumental to
one of the following commits which implements the possibility to
trigger the removal of p2m ranges via the memory_mapping DOMCTL
for ARM.

        - Silently ignore the fact that, when removing a mapping, the specified
          gfn is not mapped at all.
        - Remove spurious spacing change.

        - Don't update "count" on REMOVE as it is only used inside the
          RELINQUISH case of the switch in apply_p2m_changes().
        - Return with an error if removal of a page fails instead of just
          skipping the page.

        - Do not use a temporary variable to hold the machine address:
          use the "maddr" function parameter itself.
        - Increment the machine address also when first and second level
          mappings are not valid.
        - Get the actual machine frame number mapped to the guest frame
          number given as parameter to the function directly in the
          REMOVE case of the switch construct, as it might not be valid
          in other cases and its value might be uncorrectly used in the
        - Remove useless and/or harmful ASSERT; check however if the
          mapping is valid and skip the page if it is not.

        - Remove useless and slow lookup and use already-available
          data from pte instead.
        - Correctly increment the local variable used to keep the
          machine address whose mapping is currently being removed.
        - Return with an error upon finding a mismatch between the
          actual machine address mapped to the guest address and
          the machine address passed as parameter, instead of just
          skipping the page.
