SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 1/8] KVM: selftests: Create a demand paging test
I'll try to implement Drew's suggestion re: syncing global variables
and then looking up CPU ID. If I can do that I'll upload another patch
set for s390, aarch64, and x86. If I can't I'll move this test to the
x86 subdirectory.

I apologize for not responding to the comments on the previous version
of this patch set. I'm still learning the mailing list etiquette. In
the future is it preferable that I reply to those comments when I
upload a new patch set addressing them, or should I add a note in the
new patch emails about the comments I addressed in that update?

I don't have any aarch64 or s390 hardware handy to test on so I'll try
to move support for those architectures to separate commits at the end
of the series, and mark them untested.

Thank you for your quick responses!
