Subject: [PATCH] i386 CPA fix - do not free reserved pages
Date: Tue, 3 Jul 2007 13:33:24 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20070703173324.GA1461@Krystal> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20070703162640.GA31909@slug>

Right, there is a test missing, can you try this fix on top of my
x86_64 mm cpa cache flush fix ?


i386 CPA fix - do not free reserved pages

We have to use the same conditions found in change_page_attr in
global_tlb_flush regarding the conditions that leads to free the page.
