[PATCH v5 13/17] KVM: SEV: allow SEV-ES DebugSwap again

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


The DebugSwap feature of SEV-ES provides a way for confidential guests
to use data breakpoints.  Its status is record in VMSA, and therefore
attestation signatures depend on whether it is enabled or not.  In order
to avoid invalidating the signatures depending on the host machine, it
was disabled by default (see commit 5abf6dceb066, "SEV: disable SEV-ES
DebugSwap by default", 2024-03-09).

However, we now have a new API to create SEV VMs that allows enabling
DebugSwap based on what the user tells KVM to do, and we also changed the
legacy KVM_SEV_ES_INIT API to never enable DebugSwap.  It is therefore
possible to re-enable the feature without breaking compatibility with
kernels that pre-date the introduction of DebugSwap, so go ahead.
