SubjectRE: [PATCH Part2 v6 07/49] x86/sev: Invalid pages from direct map when adding it to RMP table
Date
[AMD Official Use Only - General]

Hello Boris,

>"...: Invalidate pages from the direct map when adding them to the RMP table"
Ok

>> +static int restore_direct_map(u64 pfn, int npages) {
>> + int i, ret = 0;
>> +
>> + for (i = 0; i < npages; i++) {
>> + ret = set_direct_map_default_noflush(pfn_to_page(pfn + i));

>set_memory_p() ?

You mean set_memory_present() ?

Is there an issue with not using set_direct_map_default_noflush(), it is easier to correlate with
this function and it's functionality of restoring the page in the kernel direct map ?

>Warn for each pfn?!

>As above, set_memory_np() doesn't work here instead of looping over each page?

Yes, set_memory_np() looks more efficient to use instead of looping over each page.

But again, calling set_direct_map_invalid_noflush() is easier to understand from the
calling function's point of view as it correlates to the functionality of invalidating the
page from kernel direct map ?

Ok.

>> + if (!ret && !val->assigned) {
>> + if (restore_direct_map(pfn, npages)) {
>> + pr_err("Failed to map pfn 0x%llx pages %d in direct_map\n",

>"Failed to map %d pages at pfn 0x... into the direct map\n"
Ok.

Thanks,
Ashish
