Subject[PATCH 0/3] KVM: SVM: Fix guest not booting w/ AVIC enabled
Certain QEMU options fails to boot VM guest w/ SVM AVIC enabled
(e.g. modprobe kvm_amd avic=1). Investigation shows that this mainly
due to AVIC hardware does not trap into hypervisor when guest OS
writes to APIC_EOI register.

The boot hang is caused by missing timer interrupt when using in-kernel
PIT model (e.g. launch qemu w/ '-no-hpet' option) since it requires
irq acknowledgmen before injecting another interrupt in case
irq re-injection is enabled (normally default).

Suravee Suthikulpanit (3):
KVM: SVM: Refactor AVIC vcpu initialization into avic_init_vcpu()
KVM: Add struct kvm_vcpu pointer parameter to get_enable_apicv()
KVM: SVM: Add irqchip_split() checks before enabling AVIC
