Subject: Re: [PATCH v4] KVM: x86: fix access memslots w/o hold srcu read lock

Hi Wanpeng,

I think I have totally missed this thread.
I opened lockdep and RCU debug, and tried on 3.18-rc1. But I didn't get 
the warning.
My steps are:

1. Use numactl to bind a qemu process to node1.
2. Offline all node1 memory. And the qemu process is still running.

Would you please tell me how did you reproduce it ?

Thanks.
