[PATCH RESEND] xen: mask _PAGE_PCD from ptes

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


_PAGE_PCD maps a page with caching disabled, which is typically used
for mapping harware registers.  Xen never allows it to be set on a
mapping, and unprivileged guests never need it since they can't see
the real underlying hardware.  However, some uncached mappings are
made early when probing the (non-existent) APIC, and its OK to mask
off the PCD flag in these cases.

This became necessary because Xen started checking for this bit, rather
than silently masking it off.
