while implementing core dumping functionality for the libxl driver
of libvirt, I discovered an issue with mapping pages of a pv guest.
After dumping the core of a pv guest the domain was not cleared up
properly and some pages were not unmapped. This issue is similar
to the one reported here:
In xc_domain_dumpcore_via_callback in the file xc_core.c the function
xc_core_arch_map_p2m is called to map P2M_FL_ENTRIES pages to the
But to unmap the pages later, the dinfo->p2m_size has to be set accordingly.
This was not done, instead a variable named p2m_size was set.
This way P2M_FL_ENTRIES was always zero and the pages were left mapped.
The following patch fixes this.
