Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 512712
Support huge pages in KVM
Last modified: 2014-09-07 18:52:55 EDT
Marcelo, note that the migration fixes are not needed. Just any other fixes.
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.
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.

run RHEL4u8 32/64,RHEL5u4 32/64,window2k3 32,window 2k8 32
and run stress inside the linux guests,sp2004 inside window guests
both guest and host are healthy during the testing
