[PATCH v19 053/130] KVM: x86/mmu: Disallow fast page fault on private GPA

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


From: Isaku Yamahata <isaku.yamahata@xxxxxxxxx>

TDX requires TDX SEAMCALL to operate Secure EPT instead of direct memory
access and TDX SEAMCALL is heavy operation.  Fast page fault on private GPA
doesn't make sense.  Disallow fast page fault on private GPA.

- updated comment to mention VM type other than TDX.
