Subject[PATCH v2 00/16] Track shared pages at EL2 in protected mode
Hi all,

This is v2 of the patch series first posted here:

This series aims to improve how the nVHE hypervisor tracks ownership of
memory pages when running in protected mode ("kvm-arm.mode=protected" on
the kernel command line).

The main issue with the existing ownership tracking code is that it is
completely binary: a page is either owned by an entity (e.g. the host)
or not. However, we'll need something smarter to track shared pages, as
is needed for virtio, or even just host/hypervisor communications.

This series introduces a few changes to the kvm page-table library to
allow annotating shared pages in ignored bits (a.k.a. software bits) of
leaf entries, and makes use of that infrastructure to track all pages
that are shared between the host and the hypervisor. We will obviously
want to apply the same treatment to guest stage-2 page-tables, but that
is not really possible to do until EL2 manages them directly, so I'll
keep that for another series.

The series is based on the latest kvmarm/fixes branch, and has been
tested on AML-S905X-CC (Le Potato) and using various Qemu configurations.

Changes since v1:
- Changed the 'share' hypercall to accept a single page at a time;
- Dropped the patch allowing to continue stage-2 map when hitting the
EAGAIN case;
- Dropped some of the custom pgtable walkers and used Marc's get_leaf()
patch instead;
- Changed pgtable API to manipulate SW bits directly rather than
specifying shared pages;
- Added comments and documentations all over;
- Cleanups and small refactoring.
