It is set to PGT_writable_page when any guest has a writable mapping of that
page. If the page is read only then it has type PGT_none.

Thanks for the reply.

When the guest loads the executable object's or library's text section
into its pagecache, will the page_info be PGT_none or

Where can I find those functions that set the value of PGT_type?  Thanks a lot.
