[Qemu-devel] [PATCH-for-4.1] virtio-balloon: fix QEMU crashes on pagesiz

Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH-for-4.1] virtio-balloon: fix QEMU crashes on pagesize > BALLOON_PAGE_SIZE

We are using the wrong functions to set/clear bits, effectively touching
multiple bits, writing out of range of the bitmap, resulting in memory
corruptions. We have to use set_bit()/clear_bit() instead.

Can easily be reproduced by starting a qemu guest on hugetlbfs memory,
inflating the balloon. QEMU crashes. This never could have worked
properly - especially, also pages would have been discarded when the
first sub-page would be inflated (the whole bitmap would be set).

While testing I realized, that on hugetlbfs it is pretty much impossible
to discard a page - the guest just frees the 4k sub-pages in random order
most of the time. I was only able to discard a hugepage a handful of
times - so I hope that now works correctly.
