[PATCH] x86/p2m: fix xenmem_add_to_physmap_one double page removal

Posted by Roger Pau Monne 1 week, 4 days ago
If the new gfn matches the previous one (ie: gfn == old_gpfn)
xenmem_add_to_physmap_one will issue a duplicated call to
guest_physmap_remove_page with the same gfn, because the
get_gpfn_from_mfn call has been moved by commit f8582da041 to be
performed before the original page is removed. This leads to the
second guest_physmap_remove_page failing, which was not the case
before commit f8582da041.

Fix this by adding a check that prevents a second call to
guest_physmap_remove_page if the previous one has already removed the
backing page from that gfn.

Fixes: f8582da041 ('x86/mm: pull a sanity check earlier in xenmem_add_to_physmap_one()')

It took me a while to realize that you probably mean "gpfn" here.

Considering the local variable of this name, may I suggest to
upper-case GFN in this case?

Same here (if this remains; see below).

It feels unbalanced to suppress the remove, but keep the add in
this case. Wouldn't we be better off skipping both, or short-
circuiting the effective no-op even earlier? I recall considering
to install a shortcut, but it didn't seem worth it. But now that
you've found actual breakage, perhaps this need reconsidering.
