Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.15 113/189] kvm: Map PFN-type memory regions as writable (if possible)
Date
From: KarimAllah Ahmed <karahmed@amazon.de>

[ Upstream commit a340b3e229b24a56f1c7f5826b15a3af0f4b13e5 ]

For EPT-violations that are triggered by a read, the pages are also mapped with
write permissions (if their memory region is also writable). That would avoid
getting yet another fault on the same page when a write occurs.

This optimization only happens when you have a "struct page" backing the memory
region. So also enable it for memory regions that do not have a "struct page".
