[Qemu-devel] [PULL 11/23] cputlb: do not evict empty entries to the vtlb

From: Richard Henderson
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PULL 11/23] cputlb: do not evict empty entries to the vtlb
Date: Mon, 28 Jan 2019 07:58:55 -0800

From: "Emilio G. Cota" <address@hidden>

Currently we evict an entry to the victim TLB when it doesn't match
the current address. But it could be that there's no match because
the current entry is empty (i.e. all -1's, for instance via tlb_flush).
Do not evict the entry to the vtlb in that case.

This change will help us keep track of the TLB's use rate, which
we'll use to implement a policy for dynamic TLB sizing.
