[RFC PATCH 0/3] Avoid soft lockup message when KVM is stopped by host

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


This set is just a rough first pass at avoiding soft lockup warnings when a host
pauses the execution of a guest.  A flag is set by the host in the shared page
used for the pvclock when the host goes to stop the guest.  When the guest
resumes and detects a soft lockup, this flag is checked and cleared and the soft
lockup message is skipped.

This currently breaks the build for non-x86 architectures but part of what I am
looking for here is how to go about adding the function stubs for everything

Eric B Munson (3):
  Add flag to indicate that a vm was stopped by the host
  Add functions to check if the host has stopped the vm
  Add check for suspended vm in softlockup detector
