Takuya Yoshikawa - July 2, 2012, 8:56 a.m.
When we tested KVM under memory pressure, with THP enabled on the host,
we noticed that MMU notifier took a long time to invalidate huge pages.

Since the invalidation was done with mmu_lock held, it not only wasted
the CPU but also made the host harder to respond.

This patch mitigates this by using kvm_handle_hva_range().
