Re: [Xen-devel] Refactoring mempaging code from xenpaging to libxc and few updates

Hi Everyone,

I am extremely sorry that I didn't notice these patches had most of the code which did exactly what xc_mem_event_enable (added by XSA-99) did.
I request you to kindly ignore this patch series, I have prepared a new patch series which takes some necessary bits and pieces from this patch series and adds them to xc_mem_event_enable.
I'll be sending the new patch series, Please have a look at those.

I am really sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks and Regards,
Dushyant BehlÂ

[PATCH v3 3/3] tools/libxc/xc_mem_paging_setup.c: FIX- Race condition
Fix for a known race condition bug in mempaging ring setup code, this race
condition is actually simmilar to that concerned by XSA-99. This patch tries to
take care of all the points mentioned in XSA-99, along with clearing the ringpage
to remove any bogus input.
