Subject: Re: [PATCH net V4] vhost: log dirty page correctly

From: Jason Wang <>
Date: Wed, 16 Jan 2019 16:54:42 +0800

> Vhost dirty page logging API is designed to sync through GPA. But we
> try to log GIOVA when device IOTLB is enabled. This is wrong and may
> lead to missing data after migration.
> To solve this issue, when logging with device IOTLB enabled, we will:
> 1) reuse the device IOTLB translation result of GIOVA->HVA mapping to
>    get HVA, for writable descriptor, get HVA through iovec. For used
>    ring update, translate its GIOVA to HVA
> 2) traverse the GPA->HVA mapping to get the possible GPA and log
>    through GPA. Pay attention this reverse mapping is not guaranteed
>    to be unique, so we should log each possible GPA in this case.
> This fix the failure of scp to guest during migration. In -next, we
> will probably support passing GIOVA->GPA instead of GIOVA->HVA.
