SubjectRe: [PATCH 4/4] kvm, mem-hotplug: Update apic access page when it is migrated.
Hi Gleb,

The guest hang problem has been solved.

When mmu_notifier is called, I set VMCS APIC_ACCESS_ADDR to the new value
instead of setting it to 0. And only update kvm->arch.apic_access_page in
the next ept violation.

The guest is running well now.

I'll post the new patches tomorrow. ;)

Thanks.
