>If a function gets an EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(), the least we can do is reasonably document it. We don't need full kerneldoc nonsense, but a one-line about what this does would be quite helpful. That goes for all the functions here.

I will add basic descriptions for all these exported functions.

Thanks,

>As a general rule, please push cpu_feature_enabled() checks as early as you reasonably can. They are *VERY* cheap and can even enable the compiler to completely zap code like an #ifdef.

There also seem to be a lot of pfn_valid() checks in here that aren't very well thought out. For instance, there's a pfn_valid() check here:


+int rmp_make_shared(u64 pfn, enum pg_level level) {
+ struct rmpupdate val;
+
+ if (!pfn_valid(pfn))
+ return -EINVAL;
...
+ return rmpupdate(pfn, &val);
+}

and in rmpupdate():

+static int rmpupdate(u64 pfn, struct rmpupdate *val) {
+ unsigned long paddr = pfn << PAGE_SHIFT;
+ int ret;
+
+ if (!pfn_valid(pfn))
+ return -EINVAL;
...


This is (at best) wasteful. Could it be refactored?
