SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] xen-netback: fix occasional leak of grant ref mappings under memory pressure
From: Igor Druzhinin <>
Date: Thu, 28 Feb 2019 12:48:03 +0000

> Zero-copy callback flag is not yet set on frag list skb at the moment

> leaking grant ref mappings since xenvif_zerocopy_callback() is never

> "d0v0 Attempt to implicitly unmap a granted PTE c010000329fce005"
> That behavior is observed under certain workloads where sudden spikes

> network traffic. Additionally, rework the logic to deal with frag_list
