Marcelo, note that the migration fixes are not needed. Just any other fixes.
Comment 5 Marcelo Tosatti 2009-07-20 12:42:48 EDT
There are no major fixes (other than the migration one), which would prevent preview of hugetlbfs backed guests. Of course some basic testing by QA would be nice.
Comment 6 Dor Laor 2009-07-20 15:08:54 EDT
In that case, it's much more simple. Marcelo, can you please post the dirty page tracking and we'll call it a day. Since the performance group did stress test it quite well.

Please make sure migration of a guest with large pages backed memory works. This was the latest fix.
