Subject[PATCH 4.14 067/138] uio_hv_generic: check that host supports monitor page
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Stephen Hemminger <stephen@networkplumber.org>


[ Upstream commit 06028d15177a1b406b7b075ea47c6a352732f23a ]

In order for userspace application to signal host, it needs the
host to support the monitor page property. Check for the flag
and fail if this is not supported.
