Subject: [PATCH v4 0/2] kvm: Use huge pages for DAX-backed files
Date: Wed, 11 Dec 2019 16:32:05 -0500
Message-ID: <20191211213207.215936-1-brho@google.com> (raw)

This patchset allows KVM to map huge pages for DAX-backed files.

I held previous versions in limbo while people were sorting out whether
or not DAX pages were going to remain PageReserved and how that relates
to KVM.

Now that that is sorted out (DAX pages are PageReserved, but they are
not kvm_is_reserved_pfn(), and DAX pages are considered on a
case-by-case basis for KVM), I can repost this.
