[Qemu-devel] [PULL 6/6] hw/virtio/balloon: Replace TARGET_PAGE_SIZE with

Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PULL 6/6] hw/virtio/balloon: Replace TARGET_PAGE_SIZE with BALLOON_PAGE_SIZE
Date: Thu, 14 Apr 2016 16:48:19 +0300

From: Thomas Huth <address@hidden>

The balloon code currently calls madvise() with TARGET_PAGE_SIZE as
length parameter. Since the virtio-balloon protocol is always based
on 4k pages, no matter what the host and guest are using as page size,
this could cause problems: If TARGET_PAGE_SIZE is bigger than 4k, the
madvise call also destroys the 4k areas after the current one - which
might be wrong since the guest did not want free that area yet (in
case the guest used as smaller MMU page size than the hard-coded
TARGET_PAGE_SIZE). So to fix this issue, introduce a proper define
called BALLOON_PAGE_SIZE (which is 4096) to use this as the size
parameter for the madvise() call instead.
