Subject[CFT PATCH 0/2] KVM: support XSAVES usage in the host
Date
The first patch ensures that XSAVES is not exposed in the guest until
we emulate MSR_IA32_XSS. The second exports XSAVE data in the correct
format.

I tested these on a non-XSAVES system so they should not be completely
broken, but I need some help. I am not even sure which XSAVE states
are _not_ enabled, and thus compacted, in Linux.

Note that these patches do not add support for XSAVES in the guest yet,
since MSR_IA32_XSS is not emulated.

If they fix the bug Nadav reported, I'll add Reported-by and commit.

Thanks,

Paolo
