Subject: [PATCH] KVM: arm64: Check GICV address is placed at a 4Kb boundary
Date: Wed, 29 Jun 2016 15:22:45 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Make sure GICV physical address is placed at a 4Kb boundary as spec 
says, not host kernel's page boundary. This prevents !4Kb kernels from 
returning an ENXIO prematurely during the KVM init phase at boot.
Tested on Overdrive 3000 with 64Kb page-size kernel with ACPI.
