Subject[PATCH 4.3 043/125] KVM: x86: work around infinite loop in microcode when #AC is delivered
Date
4.3-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Eric Northup <digitaleric@google.com>

commit 54a20552e1eae07aa240fa370a0293e006b5faed upstream.

It was found that a guest can DoS a host by triggering an infinite
stream of "alignment check" (#AC) exceptions. This causes the
microcode to enter an infinite loop where the core never receives
another interrupt. The host kernel panics pretty quickly due to the
effects (CVE-2015-5307).
