Subject: Re: [PATCH 0/2] cleanup on page size
Date: Tue, 15 Oct 2019 05:59:11 +0800

Hi, All,

I got one page size related question, hope to get some hint.

There is one comment in page_size_init().

    /* NOTE: we can always suppose that qemu_host_page_size >=
       TARGET_PAGE_SIZE */

The final result is true, since we compare qemu_host_page_size with
TARGET_PAGE_SIZE and if not qemu_host_page_size will be assigned to
TARGET_PAGE_SIZE.

Generally, there is no problem, but one corner case for migration.

In function ram_save_host_page(), it tries to save a whole host page. Or to be
specific, it tries to save a whole REAL host page.

The potential problem is when qemu_real_host_page_size < TARGET_PAGE_SIZE,
this whole host page would be a wrong range.

So I am wondering why we have the assumption written in page_size_init()?

I tried to dig out who and why we have this comment, but found the first
commit is

    commit 54936004fddc52c321cb3f9a9a51140e782bed5d

There is no reason logged.
