[Xen-devel] Failure in update_l1e()

I am seeing occasional failures of cmpxchg_user() in update_l1e().
According to the the comments in the source, this is due to a page fault
caused by the update.

The error looks like this:

(XEN) DOM5: (file=memory.c, line=670) Failed to update 08fe6065 ->
08fe6465: saw 08fe6065
DOM5: Failed update VA mapping: 000bffff, 08fe6465, 00000002

The odd value is due to a special use of one of the AVL bits for my own

This only happens when page_nr is 000bffff for some reason.

Any ideas what may be going wrong here?
