[PATCH v4 11/12] KVM: mips, x86: do not rely on KVM_REQ_UNHALT

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


From: Paolo Bonzini <pbonzini@xxxxxxxxxx>

KVM_REQ_UNHALT is a weird request that simply reports the value of
kvm_arch_vcpu_runnable() on exit from kvm_vcpu_halt().  Only
MIPS and x86 are looking at it, the others just clear it.  Check
the state of the vCPU directly so that the request is handled
as a nop on all architectures.

No functional change intended, except for corner cases where an
event arrive immediately after a signal become pending or after
another similar host-side event.
