[PATCH v3 00/15] KVM: SEV: allow customizing VMSA features

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


The idea that no parameter would ever be necessary when enabling SEV or
SEV-ES for a VM was decidedly optimistic.  The first source of variability
that was encountered is the desired set of VMSA features, as that affects
the measurement of the VM's initial state and cannot be changed
arbitrarily by the hypervisor.

This series adds all the APIs that are needed to customize the features,
with room for future enhancements:

- a new /dev/kvm device attribute to retrieve the set of supported
  features (right now, only debug swap)

- a new sub-operation for KVM_MEM_ENCRYPT_OP that can take a struct,
  replacing the existing KVM_SEV_INIT and KVM_SEV_ES_INIT

It then puts the new op to work by including the VMSA features as a field
of the The existing KVM_SEV_INIT and KVM_SEV_ES_INIT use the full set of
supported VMSA features for backwards compatibility; but I am considering
also making them use zero as the feature mask, and will gladly adjust the
patches if so requested.

In order to avoid creating *two* new KVM_MEM_ENCRYPT_OPs, I decided that
I could as well make SEV and SEV-ES use VM types.  And then, why not make
a SEV-ES VM, when created with the new VM type instead of KVM_SEV_ES_INIT,
reject KVM_GET_REGS/KVM_SET_REGS and friends on the vCPU file descriptor
once the VMSA has been encrypted...  Which is how the API should have
always behaved.

The series is structured as follows:

- patches 1 to 5 are unrelated fixes and improvements for the SEV code
  and documentation.  In particular they change sev.c so that it is
  compiled only if SEV is enabled in kconfig

- patches 6 to 8 introduce the new device attribute to retrieve supported
  VMSA features

- patch 9 disables DEBUG_SWAP by default

- patches 10 and 11 introduce new infrastructure for VM types, replacing
  the similar code in the TDX patches

- patches 12 to 14 introduce the new VM types for SEV and
  SEV-ES, and KVM_SEV_INIT2 as a new sub-operation for KVM_MEM_ENCRYPT_OP.

- patch 15 tests the new ioctl.

The idea is that SEV SNP will only ever support KVM_SEV_INIT2.  I have
patches in progress for QEMU to support this new API.



- use u64_to_user_addr()
- Compile sev.c if and only if CONFIG_KVM_AMD_SEV=y
- remove double signoffs
- rebase on top of kvm-x86/next
- no bit masking hacks; store CoCo features in kvm_arch
- store supported VM types in kvm_caps
- introduce to_kvm_sev_info
- clearer output messages for failed assertions
- remove broken test
