Marcelo,

Please Wait... I am completely confused. :(

Let's clarify "zeroing kvm_clear_all_lpage_info(kvm) and zapping the root" first.
Are these changes you wanted?

void kvm_mmu_invalid_memslot_pages(struct kvm *kvm,
struct kvm_memory_slot *slot)
{
spin_lock(&kvm->mmu_lock);
kvm->arch.mmu_valid_gen++;

/* Zero all root pages.*/
restart:
list_for_each_entry_safe(sp, node, &kvm->arch.active_mmu_pages, link) {
if (!sp->root_count)
continue;

if (kvm_mmu_prepare_zap_page(kvm, sp, &invalid_list))
goto restart;
}

/*
* All shadow paes are invalid, reset the large page info,
* then we can safely desotry the memslot, it is also good
* for large page used.
*/
kvm_clear_all_lpage_info(kvm);

kvm_mmu_commit_zap_page(kvm, &invalid_list);
spin_unlock(&kvm->mmu_lock);
}

static void rmap_remove(struct kvm *kvm, u64 *spte)
{
struct kvm_mmu_page *sp;
gfn_t gfn;
unsigned long *rmapp;

sp = page_header(__pa(spte));
+
+ /* Let invalid sp do not access its rmap. */
+ if (!sp_is_valid(sp))
+ return;
+
gfn = kvm_mmu_page_get_gfn(sp, spte - sp->spt);
rmapp = gfn_to_rmap(kvm, gfn, sp->role.level);
pte_list_remove(spte, rmapp);
}

If yes, there is the reason why we can not do this that i mentioned before:

after call kvm_mmu_invalid_memslot_pages(), the memslot->rmap will be destroyed.
Later, if host reclaim page, the mmu-notify handlers, ->invalidate_page and
->invalidate_range_start, can not find any spte using the host page, then
Accessed/Dirty for host page is missing tracked.
(missing call kvm_set_pfn_accessed and kvm_set_pfn_dirty properly.)

What's your idea?

And I should apologize for my poor communications, really sorry for that...
