I am struggling with fixing the allocation of pages to some known physical
pages used for mapping and granting access between guests.
I want to fix the allocation of pages i.e. their frame numbers to be be mapped
to fixed physical pages. I only want to do this for pages shared between guests
for mapping,c opying and transferring data.
Is there any way in linux to change mapping of already allocated pages to some
fixed physical pages?
I want to change the mapping of pages allocated in kernel used by xen frontend
and backend drivers to some fixed phsical address range.
I have looked into mremap functionality but it is used by user space
applications, not by kernel drivers. ioremap maps a physcial address to a
kernel virtual address space. But I want already allocated virtual address of
page to a fixed physical page. I want to update its page table entry to point
to fixed physical page.
