Thanks,from the path you have list to me,it can be  well explained,but
according to the source code,in the end of
kvm_init,kvm_memory_listener and  kvm_io_listener were registered by
memory_listener_register(),and  in the end of
memory_listener_register(),listener_add_address_space() was called for
each address_space,so the listener->region_add was executed then.I do
not know what mistake I have made,can you explain it to me ?? thank
you very much!
