Subject[PATCH 4.9 064/107] KVM: arm/arm64: Skip updating PTE entry if no change
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Punit Agrawal <punit.agrawal@arm.com>

commit 976d34e2dab10ece5ea8fe7090b7692913f89084 upstream.

When there is contention on faulting in a particular page table entry
at stage 2, the break-before-make requirement of the architecture can
lead to additional refaulting due to TLB invalidation.

Avoid this by skipping a page table update if the new value of the PTE
matches the previous value.

Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org
