Subject[PATCH 3.19.y-ckt 01/47] x86/xen/p2m: hint at the last populated P2M entry
Date
3.19.8-ckt15 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

---8<------------------------------------------------------------

From: David Vrabel <david.vrabel@citrix.com>

commit 98dd166ea3a3c3b57919e20d9b0d1237fcd0349d upstream.

With commit 633d6f17cd91ad5bf2370265946f716e42d388c6 (x86/xen: prepare
p2m list for memory hotplug) the P2M may be sized to accomdate a much
larger amount of memory than the domain currently has.

When saving a domain, the toolstack must scan all the P2M looking for
populated pages. This results in a performance regression due to the
unnecessary scanning.

Instead of reporting (via shared_info) the maximum possible size of
the P2M, hint at the last PFN which might be populated. This hint is
increased as new leaves are added to the P2M (in the expectation that
they will be used for populated entries).
