  • Inode-reverse mapping can be enforced to allow live-migration with FS copying

  • Punch pages from mem images on restore (optimizes live-migration)


  • Batched deduplication of memory images

  • Page-server could read partial message and failed
  • Errors in dumping of two subsequent anon VMAs in some cases
  • Irmap mis-compared devices for disk FSs
