  • Thread-topic: bad type error in get_page_type() line 1525

Hello all,

I'm getting the "Bad type" error in get_page_type() around line 1525.
The situation is this:

Linux domU driver creates a user-mode mapping to a shared-page,
including calling create_lookup_pte_addr() which returns a ptep of

App in domU user-mode accesses the page without problem.

When the app exits, the driver cleans up, then the OS cleans up the
memory space previously owned by the process.  In the course of doing
this, the kernel hits a BUG():

Xen reports:

(XEN) DOM1: (file=mm.c, line=1531) Bad type (saw 32df0004 != exp
e0000000) for m
fn a69b0 (pfn f25f)
(XEN) DOM1: (file=mm.c, line=478) Error getting mfn a69b0 (pfn f25f)
from L1 ent
ry a69b0063 for dom1

I notice that the offending mfn correlates to the ptep I got back from

I anybody can offer a clue as to what is going wrong, I'd much
appreciate it!
