    Subject[PATCH v2 0/6] KVM: MMU: fast invalid all mmio sptes
    Changelog in v2:
    - rename kvm_mmu_invalid_mmio_spte to kvm_mmu_invalid_mmio_sptes
    - use kvm->memslots->generation as kvm global generation-number
    - fix comment and codestyle
    - init kvm generation close to mmio wrap-around value
    - keep kvm_mmu_zap_mmio_sptes

    The current way is holding hot mmu-lock and walking all shadow pages, this
    is not scale. This patchset tries to introduce a very simple and scale way
    to fast invalid all mmio sptes - it need not walk any shadow pages and hold
    any locks.

    The idea is simple:
    KVM maintains a global mmio invalid generation-number which is stored in
    kvm->memslots.generation and every mmio spte stores the current global
    generation-number into his available bits when it is created

    When KVM need zap all mmio sptes, it just simply increase the global
    generation-number. When guests do mmio access, KVM intercepts a MMIO #PF
    then it walks the shadow page table and get the mmio spte. If the
    generation-number on the spte does not equal the global generation-number,
    it will go to the normal #PF handler to update the mmio spte

    Since 19 bits are used to store generation-number on mmio spte, we zap all
    mmio sptes when the number is round

    Xiao Guangrong (6):
    KVM: MMU: retain more available bits on mmio spte
    KVM: MMU: store generation-number into mmio spte
    KVM: MMU: make return value of mmio page fault handler more readable
    KVM: MMU: fast invalid all mmio sptes
    KVM: MMU: add tracepoint for check_mmio_spte
    KVM: MMU: init kvm generation close to mmio wrap-around value
