Subject: [PATCH RFCv2 05/15] xen/arm: mm: Avoid flushing the TLBs when mapping are inserted
Date: Sun, 25 Apr 2021 21:13:08 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210425201318.15447-6-julien@xen.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210425201318.15447-1-julien@xen.org>

From: Julien Grall <jgrall@amazon.com>

Currently, the function xen_pt_update() will flush the TLBs even when
the mappings are inserted. This is a bit wasteful because we don't
allow mapping replacement. Even if we were, the flush would need to
happen earlier because mapping replacement should use Break-Before-Make
when updating the entry.

A single call to xen_pt_update() can perform a single action. IOW, it
is not possible to, for instance, mix inserting and removing mappings.
Therefore, we can use `flags` to determine what action is performed.

This change will be particularly help to limit the impact of switching
boot time mapping to use xen_pt_update().
