[Xen-devel] [PATCH v9 00/13] arm/mem_access: Walk guest page tables in SW

The function p2m_mem_access_check_and_get_page is called from the
function get_page_from_gva if mem_access is active and the
hardware-aided translation of the given guest virtual address (gva) into
machine address fails. That is, if the stage-2 translation tables
constrain access to the guests's page tables, hardware-assisted
translation will fail. The idea of the function
p2m_mem_access_check_and_get_page is thus to translate the given gva and
check the requested access rights in software. However, as the current
implementation of p2m_mem_access_check_and_get_page makes use of the
hardware-aided gva to ipa translation, the translation might also fail
because of reasons stated above and will become equally relevant for the
altp2m implementation on ARM.  As such, we provide a software guest
translation table walk to address the above mentioned issue.

The current version of the implementation supports translation of both
the short-descriptor as well as the long-descriptor translation table
format on ARMv7 and ARMv8 (AArch32/AArch64).

This revised version incorporates the comments of the previous patch
series, which mainly comprise minor cosmetic fixes. All changes have
been discussed with the associated maintainers and accordingly stated in
the individual patches.

The following patch series can be found on Github[0].
