[Xen-devel] [PATCH for 4.5] xen/arm: p2m: Fix crash when p2m_lookup is used with an invalid IPA

Since the commit 58f0fd8 "xen: arm: handle variable p2m levels in p2m_lookup",
Xen checks that the root_table offset is valid. If not, its unlock the p2m
spinlock before returning an error. But, at this time, the lock has not been

On Xen built with debug=y, we can get the following stack trace if the guest
use an invalid IPA in hypercall or mess-up the grant-table:

    This is a bug fix for Xen 4.5. Any buggy guest could make Xen crash in
