thanx for suggestion

printk trace shows that it using sh_gva_to_gfn. Inside guest_walk_to_gfn,  a call to function guest_l1e_get_flags returns 0.

I think it work only for v==current. Is there any other approach that i can take.

you mentions about hap_gva_to_gfn. When hvm uses this hap_gva_to_gfn depending upon hardware.

It should work, though I'm not sure that any other code calls
paging_gva_to_gfn() with v != current. It will depend on the hardware
you run on whether the function called is actually hap_gva_to_gfn_
or sh_gva_to_gfn; you could try instrumenting with printk or otherwise.
