Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH v3 3/3] xen: rework paging_log_dirty_op to work with hvm guests


I think I've fixed the rest of the comments, this one however is not
easy to deal with.

Yes, there's no previous BUG_ON because this was not a problem in the
past, since we could write to any position on dirty_bitmap, but that's
not the case any more. Since we only have one page mapped at a time we
need to make sure that what we are about to write doesn't cross a page

I understand this is not an ideal solution, but AFAICT there's no easy
way to deal with writes that expand over a page boundary.
