[kvm-unit-tests PATCH v7 3/8] s390x: sie: switch to home space mode before entering SIE

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


This is to prepare for running guests without MSO/MSL, which is
currently not possible.

We already have code in sie64a to setup a guest primary ASCE before
entering SIE, so we can in theory switch to the page tables which
translate gpa to hpa.

But the host is running in primary space mode already, so changing the
primary ASCE before entering SIE will also affect the host's code and

To make this switch useful, the host should run in a different address
space mode. Hence, set up and change to home address space mode before
installing the guest ASCE.

The home space ASCE is just copied over from the primary space ASCE, so
no functional change is intended, also for tests that want to use
MSO/MSL. If a test intends to use a different primary space ASCE, it can
now just set the guest.asce in the save_area.
