Description Stephen Tweedie 2006-12-05 12:11:04 EST
Description of problem:
The blktap backend needs zap_page_range() exported: it uses this to clear its
guest mappings during driver shutdown.

Current RHEL-5 has 
as an implicit part of the PV-FB patch.  But the new upstream PV-FB does not
have that, and blktap still needs it.

So updating the blktap patch will break PV-FB.

So we need to move that chunk from the PV-FB patch to the blktap-fixes patch in
order to preserve it.
