xen/x86: replace order-based range checking of M2P table by linear one
Jan Beulich [Tue, 16 Aug 2011 14:07:41 +0000 (15:07 +0100)]
The order-based approach is not only less efficient (requiring a shift
and a compare, typical generated code looking like this

mov eax, [machine_to_phys_order]
mov ecx, eax
shr ebx, cl
test ebx, ebx
jnz ...

whereas a direct check requires just a compare, like in

cmp ebx, [machine_to_phys_nr]
jae ...

), but also slightly dangerous in the 32-on-64 case - the element
address calculation can wrap if the next power of two boundary is
sufficiently far away from the actual upper limit of the table, and
hence can result in user space addresses being accessed (with it being
unknown what may actually be mapped there).

Additionally, the elimination of the mistaken use of fls() here (should
have been __fls()) fixes a latent issue on x86-64 that would trigger
if the code was run on a system with memory extending beyond the 44-bit
boundary.
