Subject[PATCH 36/47] KVM: ignore reads from AMDs C1E enabled MSR
Date
From: Andre Przywara <andre.przywara@amd.com>

If the Linux kernel detects an C1E capable AMD processor (K8 RevF and
higher), it will access a certain MSR on every attempt to go to halt.
Explicitly handle this read and return 0 to let KVM run a Linux guest
with the native AMD host CPU propagated to the guest.
