[PATCH v2] migration/rdma: Use huge page register VM memory

Posted by LIZHAOXIN1 5 days, 16 hours ago
When using libvirt for RDMA live migration, if the VM memory
is too large, it will take a lot of time to deregister the VM
at the source side, resulting in a long downtime (VM 64G,
deregister vm time is about 400ms).
    
Although the VM's memory uses 2M huge pages, the MLNX driver
still uses 4K pages for pin memory, as well as for unpin.
So we use huge pages to skip the process of pin memory and
unpin memory to reduce downtime.

v2
- Add page_size in struct RDMALocalBlock
- Use page_size to determine whether VM uses huge page
