[PATCH v2 04/12] X86/KVM: Handle PFNs outside of kernel reach when touching GPTEs




From: Filippo Sironi <sironi@xxxxxxxxx>

cmpxchg_gpte() calls get_user_pages_fast() to retrieve the number of
pages and the respective struct page to map in the kernel virtual
address space.
This doesn't work if get_user_pages_fast() is invoked with a userspace
virtual address that's backed by PFNs outside of kernel reach (e.g., when
limiting the kernel memory with mem= in the command line and using
/dev/mem to map memory).

If get_user_pages_fast() fails, look up the VMA that back the userspace
virtual address, compute the PFN and the physical address, and map it in
the kernel virtual address space with memremap().
