[Qemu-devel] [PATCH] Assume madvise for (no)hugepage works

From: Dr. David Alan Gilbert (git)
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH] Assume madvise for (no)hugepage works
Date: Thu, 19 Nov 2015 15:27:48 +0000

From: "Dr. David Alan Gilbert" <address@hidden>

madvise() returns EINVAL in the case of many failures, but also
returns it in cases where the host kernel doesn't have THP enabled.
Postcopy only really cares that THP is off before it detects faults,
and turns it back on afterwards; so we're going to have
to assume that if the madvise fails then the host just doesn't do
THP and we can carry on with the postcopy.
