Subject[PATCH v19 7/7] virtio-balloon: don't report free pages when page poisoning is enabled
Date
The guest free pages should not be discarded by the live migration thread
when page poisoning is enabled with PAGE_POISONING_NO_SANITY=n, because
skipping the transfer of such poisoned free pages will trigger false
positive when new pages are allocated and checked on the destination.
This patch adds a config field, poison_val. Guest writes to the config
field to tell the host about the poisoning value. The value will be 0 in
the following cases:
1) PAGE_POISONING_NO_SANITY is enabled;
2) page poisoning is disabled; or
3) PAGE_POISONING_ZERO is enabled.
