Hi Radim / Paolo,

Sorry for delay in response.

I have quite messed up in the logic here for handling the logical
cluster ID. Sorry for not catching this earlier. I'm rewriting this
function altogether to simplify it in the V5.

By validating the old one, are you suggesting that we should disable the
logical APIC table entry previously used by this vcpu? If so, that means
we would need to cached the previous LDR value since the one in vAPIC
backing page would already be updated.

Hm.. This means we might need to introduce a new hook which is called
from the arch/x86/kvm/lapic.c: kvm_apic_post_state_restore(). Probably
something like kvm_x86_ops->apic_post_state_restore(), which sets up the
new physical and logical APIC id tables for AVIC.

If this works, I'll add support to handle this and test with the
migration stuff in the V5.

Then, this would continue as if we are handling the normal fault access.

Ok. What about just WARN_ONCE(!write, "svm: Handling trap read.\n");

Thanks,
Suravee
