[PATCH 00/10] KVM: x86: Fix LVTPC masking on AMD CPUs

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


This is kinda sorta v2 of Sandipan's fix for KVM's incorrect setting of
the MASK bit when delivering PMIs through the LVTPC.

It's a bit rushed, as I want to get Sandipan's fix applied early next
week so that it can make its way to Linus' tree for -rc4.  And I didn't
want to apply Sandipan's patch as-is, because I'm a little paranoid that
the guest CPUID check could be noticeable slow, and it's easy to avoid.

My plan is to grab patches 1-2 for 6.9 asap, and let the rest simmer for
much, much longer (they are *very* lightly tested).

As for why this looks wildy different than Sandipan's compat_vendor idea,
when I started looking at KVM's various AMD vs. Intel checks, I realized
it makes no sense to support an "unknown" vendor.  KVM can't do *nothing*,
and so practically speaking, an "unknown" vendor vCPU would actually end
up with a weird mix of AMD *and* Intel behavior, not AMD *or* Intel
