Subject[PATCH 0/9 v2] KVM: Nested SVM fixes and tracepoint conversion
Date
Hi Avi, Marcelo,

this series of patches contains bugfixes for the Nested SVM code and the
conversion of Nested SVM debugging to tracepoints. The fixes are:

1) A patch Alex already sent (1/9) but which was not yet
applied. It fixes a lost event_inj problem when we emulate
a vmrun and a vmexit without entering the guest in
the meantime.

2) The patch 2/9 fixes a schedule() while atomic bug in the
Nested SVM code. The KVM interrupt injection code runs
with preemtion and interrupts disabled. But the
enable_irq_window() function from SVM may emulate a
#vmexit. This emulation migth sleep which causes the
schedule() while atomic() bug.

These fixes (patches 1 and 2) should also be considered for -stable
backporting.

The patches 3 to 8 convert the old printk based debugging for Nested SVM
to tracepoints. Patch 9 removes the nsvm_printk code. Please review
and/or consider to apply these changes.

Thanks,

Joerg

Changes to v1:

* Fixed typo on comment in patch
"KVM: SVM: Notify nested hypervisor of lost event injections"
* Made the fix for the schedule()-while-atomic bug out of the generic
code. It touches only SVM code now.
