Subject[PATCH v2 0/2] KVM: Fix refaulting due to page table update
Date
Hi,

Here's a couple of patches to fix an issue when multiple vcpus fault
on a page table entry[0]. The issue was reported by a user when testing
PUD hugepage support[1] but also exists for PMD and PTE updates though
with a lower probability.

In this version -

* the fix has been split for PMD hugepage and PTE update
* refactored the PMD fix
* applied fixes tag and cc'ing to stable

Thanks,
Punit
