Certainly... the test os maps itself in V==R, and it seems to have a call
to check for each entry before mapping it. Seems kinda silly... but the
code has a ton of ifdefs for processors with software loaded TLB.... very
yucky, and I have a feeling that the code was cut and pasted a couple of
Debugging was a pain, since printfs where not flushed... so 10 minute cycle
time for rebooting to do a binary search with a while(1). Tried two things
to help me debug, might be of value to discuss. First, I tried yielding
the processor a few hundred times after each printf. This didn't help at
all. I have a feeling that the problem here is that I am only writting to
event channel, not consuming events, so the yeild doesn't actually yield
the processor. Is this worth exploring?
This morning I decided to explore blocking the VCPU instead of yielding.
It resulted in a BUG_ON in Xen in external.c line 63
/* XXX OS error: EE was set but RI was not. We could trigger a machine
* check, or kill the domain... for now just crash Xen so we notice. */
BUG_ON(!(regs->msr & MSR_RI));

A little cscope'ing reveals, arch/powerpc/papr/xlate.c:
static void not_yet(struct cpu_user_regs *regs)
printk("not implemented yet: 0x%lx\n", regs->gprs);
Obviously not_yet() was written before we had a proper panic() and
before we "de-synchronized" console.
Linux does not use H_READ anymore, but we should still supported,
I'll get on that now, tho I'll need your help to test.
Any idea why libOS is using it?
