[PATCH 5.15 0/2] KVM: x86: Fix for dirty logging emulated atomics

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


Two KVM x86 backports for 5.15.  Patch 2 is the primary motivation (fix
for potential guest data corruption after live migration).

Patch 1 is a (very) soft dependency to resolve a conflict.  It's not strictly
necessary (manually resolving the conflict wouldn't be difficult), but it
is a fix that has been in upstream for a long time.  The only reason I didn't
tag it for stable from the get-go is that the bug it fixes is very
theoretical.  At this point, the odds of the patch causing problems are
lower than the odds of me botching a manual backport.

Sean Christopherson (2):
  KVM: x86: Bail to userspace if emulation of atomic user access faults
  KVM: x86: Mark target gfn of emulated atomic instruction as dirty
