Subject[PATCH 4.4 25/41] kvm: nVMX: Dont allow L2 to access the hardware CR8
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Jim Mattson <jmattson@google.com>

commit 51aa68e7d57e3217192d88ce90fd5b8ef29ec94f upstream.

If L1 does not specify the "use TPR shadow" VM-execution control in
vmcs12, then L0 must specify the "CR8-load exiting" and "CR8-store
exiting" VM-execution controls in vmcs02. Failure to do so will give
the L2 VM unrestricted read/write access to the hardware CR8.

This fixes CVE-2017-12154.
