Subject: [PATCH 6/7] KVM: MMU: clarify fast_pf_fix_direct_spte
Date: Wed,  3 May 2017 18:52:23 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20170503105224.19049-7-xiaoguangrong@tencent.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20170503105224.19049-1-xiaoguangrong@tencent.com>

From: Xiao Guangrong <xiaoguangrong@tencent.com>

The writable spte can not be locklessly fixed and add a WARN_ON()
to trigger the warning if something out of our mind happens, that
is good for us to track if the log for writable spte is missed
on the fast path
