Can u please guid me a little bit, on how to write such function which
will work on a batch of pages?
Should i just enclose the:
pg_maddr = addr_to_dma_page_maddr(d, (paddr_t)gfn << PAGE_SHIFT_4K, 1);
if ( pg_maddr == 0 )
page = (struct dma_pte *)map_vtd_domain_page(pg_maddr);
pte = page + (gfn & LEVEL_MASK);
pte_present = dma_pte_present(*pte);
dma_set_pte_addr(*pte, (paddr_t)mfn << PAGE_SHIFT_4K);
dma_set_pte_prot(*pte, DMA_PTE_READ | DMA_PTE_WRITE);
/* Set the SNP on leaf page table if Snoop Control available */
if ( iommu_snoop )
in a loop?
