Subject[RFC PATCH 1/4 V2] livedump: Add notifier-call-chain into do_page_fault
Date
This patch adds notifier-call-chain that is called in do_page_fault.
Livedump uses this to check if page fault is caused by livedump, and if so,
the fault is handled by livedump's handler function. Otherwise, it is
handled by the original page fault handler.
