Subject[PATCH] KVM: nVMX: VMX instructions: fix segment checks when L1 is in long mode.
Date
I couldn't get Xen to boot a L2 HVM when it was nested under KVM - it was
getting a GP(0) on a rather unspecial vmread from Xen:

Tracing my host KVM showed it was the one injecting the GP(0) when
emulating the VMREAD and checking the destination segment permissions in
get_vmx_mem_address():

3) | vmx_handle_exit() {
3) | handle_vmread() {
3) | nested_vmx_check_permission() {

3) 0.065 us | vmx_read_guest_seg_selector();

3) 1.636 us | }
3) 0.058 us | vmx_get_rflags();
3) 0.062 us | vmx_read_guest_seg_ar();

3) 1.756 us | }

3) 0.066 us | kvm_multiple_exception();
3) 0.684 us | }
3) 4.085 us | }
3) 9.833 us | }
3) + 10.366 us | }

Cross-checking the KVM/VMX VMREAD emulation code with the Intel Software
Developper Manual Volume 3C - "VMREAD - Read Field from Virtual-Machine
Control Structure", I found that we're enforcing that the destination
operand is NOT located in a read-only data segment or any code segment when
the L1 is in long mode - BUT that check should only happen when it is in
protected mode.

Shuffling the code a bit to make our emulation follow the specification
allows me to boot a Xen dom0 in a nested KVM and start HVM L2 guests
without problems.

This fix is needed from 4.2 onward or if

f9eb4af67c9d ("KVM: nVMX: VMX instructions: add checks for #GP/#SS exceptions")

has been back-ported.
