[PATCH 4.3 141/157] ARM/arm64: KVM: correct PTE uncachedness check

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Wed Jan 27 2016 - 13:31:40 EST

4.3-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Ard Biesheuvel <ard.biesheuvel@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 0de58f852875a0f0dcfb120bb8433e4e73c7803b upstream.

Commit e6fab5442345 ("ARM/arm64: KVM: test properly for a PTE's
uncachedness") modified the logic to test whether a HYP or stage-2
mapping needs flushing, from [incorrectly] interpreting the page table
attributes to [incorrectly] checking whether the PFN that backs the
mapping is covered by host system RAM. The PFN number is part of the
output of the translation, not the input, so we have to use pte_pfn()
on the contents of the PTE, not __phys_to_pfn() on the HYP virtual
address or stage-2 intermediate physical address.

Fixes: e6fab5442345 ("ARM/arm64: KVM: test properly for a PTE's uncachedness")
