[PATCH] paravirt: lazy mmu mode hooks.patch
Implement lazy MMU update hooks which are SMP safe for both direct and shadow page tables. The idea is that PTE updates and page invalidations while in lazy mode can be batched into a single hypercall. We use this in VMI for shadow page table synchronization, and it is a win. It also can be used by PPC and for direct page tables on Xen. For SMP, the enter / leave must happen under protection of the page table locks for page tables which are being modified. This is because otherwise, you end up with stale state in the batched hypercall, which other CPUs can race ahead of. Doing this under the protection of the locks guarantees the synchronization is correct, and also means that spurious faults which are generated during this window by remote CPUs are properly handled, as the page fault handler must re-check the PTE under protection of the same lock.

+ * A facility to provide lazy MMU batching. This allows PTE updates and
+ * page invalidations to be delayed until a call to leave lazy MMU mode
+ * is issued. Some architectures may benefit from doing this, and it is
+ * beneficial for both shadow and direct mode hypervisors, which may batch
+ * the PTE updates which happen during this window. Note that using this
+ * interface requires that read hazards be removed from the code. A read
+ * hazard could result in the direct mode hypervisor case, since the actual
+ * write to the page tables may not yet have taken place, so reads though
+ * a raw PTE pointer after it has been modified are not guaranteed to be
+ * up to date. This mode can only be entered and left under the protection of
+ * the page table locks for all page tables which may be modified. In the UP
+ * case, this is required so that preemption is disabled, and in the SMP case,
+ * it must synchronize the delayed page table writes properly on other CPUs.
