Can't do that - some later allocations are huge.

which triggers do_page_fault, handle_mm_fault, do_linear_fault, __do_fault
and finally ttm_bo_vm_fault.
ttm_bo_fault returns VM_FAULT_NOPAGE
- but xen-boot keeps on re-triggering the same fault.
when vm_fault calls ttm_tt_get_page, the page is already there, and
the handler does another vm_insert_page (i changed vm_insert_mixed
vm_insert_page/pfn based on io_mem, now the only patch, and it works on
bare machine) on and on and on.
What can possibly cause the fault-handler to repeat endlessly?
If a wrong page is backed at the user-address, it should create bad_access or
some other subsequent events - but the system is running fine minus all local
consoles! If the insertion is to a wrong place, this can happen; but
trap is the only provider of the address - and the fault addres and
vma address match,
and the same code works fine on bare-boot.
ttm_tt_get_page calls alloc in a loop - so it may allocate multiple pages from
start/end depending on Highmem memory or not - implying asynchronous allocation
All I want now is *ptr = (uint32_t)data to work as of now!
