Hi Paolo,

I'd like to help to test the patches.
Would you please tell me what is the best way to test this patch-set ?
How did _you_ test the patches?...

I just added "-cpu xxx,-x2apic" option, start the guest, using numactl to bind it
to a node (eg: node1). And offline the pages on node1. And repeat above thing
for a while. And it is OK.

I'm not sure if this is enough.


I think ept page is being used by regular guest.
Is adding "-cpu xxx,-x2apic option" able to make sure guest is using
apic page ?
