Subject[PATCH V5 4/9] vhost: reset invalidate_count in vhost_set_vring_num_addr()
Date
The vhost_set_vring_num_addr() could be called in the middle of
invalidate_range_start() and invalidate_range_end(). If we don't reset
invalidate_count after the un-registering of MMU notifier, the
invalidate_cont will run out of sync (e.g never reach zero). This will
in fact disable the fast accessor path. Fixing by reset the count to
zero.
