KVM: Fix overlapping check for memory slots
Jan Kiszka [Mon, 13 Apr 2009 09:59:32 +0000 (11:59 +0200)]
When checking for overlapping slots on registration of a new one, kvm
currently also considers zero-length (ie. deleted) slots and rejects
requests incorrectly. This finally denies user space from joining slots.
Fix the check by skipping deleted slots and advertise this via a
KVM_CAP_JOIN_MEMORY_REGIONS_WORKS.
