Subject[PATCH v5 0/2] arm64: kvm: reset hyp context for kexec
Date
This patch was initially intended to address a KVM issue described in
Geoff's kexec patch set[1]. But now the title of patch#1 would be more
suitable for the entire code as it was overhauled and, since the 4th
version, the fix is implemented as kvm cpu hotplug after Mark's comment.

I confirmed that it works with kexec under the following scenarios:
- boot 1st kernel
- run a guest OS
- (stop a guest OS)
- reboot 2nd kernel by kexec
- run a guest OS

test target: MediaTek MT8173-EVB
version: kernel v4.0-rc1 + Geoff's kexec v8 + Ard's patch[2]

But I didn't test other complicated scenarios with cpu hotplug.

On arm, Frediano[3] is no longer working on this issue as he left his
company. So patch#1 also has a stub definition for arm.


Changes from v4:
* restructured the patchset as cpu_init_hyp_mode() and kvm_cpu_reset() were
renamed to kvm_arch_hardware_{enable,disable}() respectively
* omitted some obvious arguments from __cpu_reset_hyp_mode().

Changes from v3:
* modified to use kvm cpu hotplug framework directly instead of reboot
notifier hook

Changes from v2:
* modified kvm_virt_to_trampoline() macro to fix a page-alignment issue[4]

Changes from v1:
* modified kvm_cpu_reset() implementation:
- define a macro to translate va to addr in trampoline
- use __hyp_default_vectors instead of kvm_get_hyp_stub_vectors()
- shuffle the arguments in __cpu_reset_hyp_mode()
- optimize TLB flush operations
* changed a patch#2's name
* added a patch#5 to add stub code for arm
