Being symmetric is why I asked. Anyway no strong opinion.

When I was looking at the code, I thought fault->gfn is still having the
shred bit, and gpa_to_gfn() internally strips aways the shared bit, but
sorry it is not true.

My question is why do we even need this change? Souldn't we pass the
actual GFN (which doesn't have the shared bit) to
kvm_mtrr_check_gfn_range_consistency()?

If so, looks we should use fault->gfn to get the base?

Sorry, I meant fault->addr.

I meant it seems we should just strip shared bit away from the GPA in
handle_ept_violation() and pass it as 'cr2_or_gpa' here, so fault->addr
won't have the shared bit.

Do you see any problem of doing so?

My thinking:

Changelog should clarify why include shared bit to 'gfn' in tdp_iter.

And here around the 'gfn' we can have some simple sentence to explain
why to include the shared bit.
