[PATCH v9 1/4] arm: add ARMv7 HYP API to flush VM TLBs ... - looking for comments

I'm circling back on this patch series for review comments. Primarily
patches 1 and 3 (numbered below).
To summarize this patch series adds dirty page logging for ARMv7, the dirty
page log read function has been moved to generic layer common between
x86, armv7, as result the function has generic and architecture variants.
This led to split of kvm tlb flushing, patch 1 adds architecture variant
for ARM to support its hardware broadcast TLB invalidation.
In both cases same approach is used - changes to arch kvm Kconfigs and
generic kvm Kconfig.
Would appreciate some feedback yes/no/maybe if?, I'm currently working on
arm64, and review of this version will impact next.
>This patch adds support for dirty page logging so far tested only on ARMv7 HW,
>and verified to compile on armv8, ia64, mips, ppc, s390 and compile and run on
>Change from previous version:
>- kvm_flush_remote_tlbs() has generic and architecture specific variants.
> armv7 (later armv8) uses arch variant all other archtectures use generic
> version. Reason being arm uses HW broadcast for TLB invalidation.
>- kvm_vm_ioctl_get_dirty_log() - is generic between armv7, x86 (later ARMv8),
> other architectures use arch variant
>The approach is documented
>- x86_64 - defconfig also did validation, simple migration on same host.
>- ia64 - ia64-linux-gcc4.6.3 - defconfig, ia64 Kconfig defines BROKEN worked
> around that to make sure new changes don't break build. Eventually build
> breaks when comping ioapic.c, unrelated to this patch.
>- mips - mips64-linux-gcc4.6.3 - malta_kvm_defconfig
>- ppc - powerpc64-linux-gcc4.6.3 - pseries_defconfig
>- s390 - s390x-linux-gcc4.6.3 - defconfig
>Dirty page logging support -
>- initially write protects VM RAM memory regions - 2nd stage page tables
>- add support to read dirty page log and again write protect the dirty pages
> - second stage page table for next pass.
>- second stage huge page are dissolved into page tables to keep track of
> dirty pages at page granularity. Tracking at huge page granularity limits
> migration to an almost idle system.
>- In the event migration is canceled, normal behavior is resumed huge pages
> are rebuilt over time.
>- At this time reverse mappings are not used to for write protecting of 2nd
> stage tables.
>- Future work
> - Enable diry memory logging to work on ARMv8 FastModels/Foundations Model
>NOTE: RUNNING on FAST Models will hardly ever fail and mask bugs, initially
> light loads were succeeding without dirty page logging support.
>- Will put all components on github, including test setup on github

>Destination host IP 192.168.10.100/24, VM same settings as above.
>Both VMs have identical MAC addresses.
>Initially NFS server route to 192.168.2.100 is via 192.168.10.101
>- ssh 192.168.2.100

> route add -host 192.168.2.100 gw 192.168.10.100
>ssh should resume after route switch. ping as well should work
