[Xen-ia64-devel] Re: [PATCH] Re: [Xen-devel] Re: [PATCH 2/2] PV framebuffer

Hi, Markus

  About SMP DomU VFB call trace problem.

 I searched the code and found
the code in smp_call_function line337@linux/arch/ia64/kernel/smp.c

The call trace problem caused by spin_lock_irqsave()
in xenfb_update_screen@linux/drivers/xen/fbfront/xenfb.c

Why you need to use spin_lock_irqsave in xenfb_update()?
I understand the locking but why irqsave is required at this point?
