You can measure your patch quite easy.

1. Run a simple program that malloc huge size (2GB for example), then
go into infinite loop that touches each in a really bad manner, like
only touch odd page numbers.
2. Start live migration which usually won't finish. Similar with Kemari.
3. Measure the response time of your ioctl().

I used 1 and 2 to measure dirty physmap speed up in QEMU.

Thanks,
