Subject[ 103/108] xen/p2m: Fix one-off error in checking the P2M tree directory.
From: Greg KH <>

3.5-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk <>

commit 50e900417b8096939d12a46848f965e27a905e36 upstream.

We would traverse the full P2M top directory (from 0->MAX_DOMAIN_PAGES
inclusive) when trying to figure out whether we can re-use some of the
P2M middle leafs.

Which meant that if the kernel was compiled with MAX_DOMAIN_PAGES=512
we would try to use the 512th entry. Fortunately for us the p2m_top_index
has a check for this:

BUG_ON(pfn >= MAX_P2M_PFN);

which we hit and saw this:
