Subject[PATCH 4 of 4] xen: add mechanism to extend existing multicalls
Date
From
Some Xen hypercalls accept an array of operations to work on.  In
general this is because its more efficient for the hypercall to the
work all at once rather than as separate hypercalls (even batched as a
multicall).

This patch adds a mechanism (xen_mc_extend_args()) to allocate more
argument space to the last-issued multicall, in order to extend its
argument list.

The user of this mechanism is xen/mmu.c, which uses it to extend the
args array of mmu_update. This is particularly valuable when doing
the update for a large mprotect, which goes via
ptep_modify_prot_commit(), but it also manages to batch updates to
pgd/pmds as well.
