Subject[PATCH 10/12] KVM: MMU: allow locklessly access shadow page table out of vcpu thread
Date
It is easy if the handler is in the vcpu context, in that case we can use
walk_shadow_page_lockless_begin() and walk_shadow_page_lockless_end() that
disable interrupt to stop shadow page be freed. But we are on the ioctl context
and the paths we are optimizing for have heavy workload, disabling interrupt is
not good for the system performance

We add a indicator into kvm struct (kvm->arch.rcu_free_shadow_page), then use
call_rcu() to free the shadow page if that indicator is set. Set/Clear the
indicator are protected by slot-lock, so it need not be atomic and does not
hurt the performance and the scalability
