Subject[PATCH v3 00/15] KVM: Dynamically size memslot arrays
The end goal of this series is to dynamically size the memslot array so
that KVM allocates memory based on the number of memslots in use, as
opposed to unconditionally allocating memory for the maximum number of
memslots. On x86, each memslot consumes 88 bytes, and so with 2 address
spaces of 512 memslots, each VM consumes ~90k bytes for the memslots.
E.g. given a VM that uses a total of 30 memslots, dynamic sizing reduces
the memory footprint from 90k to ~2.6k bytes.

The changes required to support dynamic sizing are relatively small,
e.g. are essentially contained in patches 14/15 and 15/15. Patches 1-13
clean up the memslot code, which has gotten quite crusty, especially
__kvm_set_memory_region(). The clean up is likely not strictly necessary
to switch to dynamic sizing, but I didn't have a remotely reasonable
level of confidence in the correctness of the dynamic sizing without first
doing the clean up.

Christoffer, I added your Tested-by to the patches that I was confident
would be fully tested based on the desription of what you tested. Let me
know if you disagree with any of 'em.

- Fix build errors on PPC and MIPS due to missed params during
refactoring [kbuild test robot].
- Rename the helpers for update_memslots() and add comments describing
the new algorithm and how it interacts with searching [Paolo].
- Remove the unnecessary and obnoxious warning regarding memslots being
a flexible array [Paolo].
- Fix typos in the changelog of patch 09/15 [Christoffer].
- Collect tags [Christoffer].

- Split "Drop kvm_arch_create_memslot()" into three patches to move
minor functional changes to standalone patches [Janosch].
- Rebase to latest kvm/queue (f0574a1cea5b, "KVM: x86: fix ...")
- Collect an Acked-by and a Reviewed-by

Sean Christopherson (15):
KVM: Reinstall old memslots if arch preparation fails
KVM: Don't free new memslot if allocation of said memslot fails
KVM: PPC: Move memslot memory allocation into prepare_memory_region()
KVM: x86: Allocate memslot resources during prepare_memory_region()
KVM: Drop kvm_arch_create_memslot()
KVM: Explicitly free allocated-but-unused dirty bitmap
KVM: Refactor error handling for setting memory region
KVM: Move setting of memslot into helper routine
KVM: Move memslot deletion to helper function
KVM: Simplify kvm_free_memslot() and all its descendents
KVM: Clean up local variable usage in __kvm_set_memory_region()
KVM: Provide common implementation for generic dirty log functions
KVM: Ensure validity of memslot with respect to kvm_get_dirty_log()
KVM: Terminate memslot walks via used_slots
KVM: Dynamically size memslot array based on number of used slots
