[PATCH v3 0/2] Fix hyperv synic on vhost

Hyperv's synic (that we emulate) is a feature that allows the guest
to place some magic (4k) pages of RAM anywhere it likes in GPA.
This confuses vhost's RAM section merging when these pages
land over the top of hugepages.

This v3 takes a different approach to v2 and v1.
It avoids doing the hugepage alignment except for vhost-user:

  a) Vhost kernel : doesn't need alignment, it's turned off
     synic won't cause a problem.

  b) vhost user : Already filters out anything without an fd
     synic won't cause a problem.

(Not tried vhost-user yet, it currently seems broken even without this).

This might also cause some other reported problems with vga
pages causing similar issues.

Dr. David Alan Gilbert (2):
  vhost: Add names to section rounded warning
  vhost: Only align sections for vhost-user
