Subject[PATCH v3 2/2] KVM: nVMX: Fix preemption timer bit set in vmcs02 even if L1 doesn't enable it
From: Wanpeng Li <>

We will go to vcpu_run() loop after L0 emulates VMRESUME which incurs
kvm_sched_out and kvm_sched_in operations since cond_resched() will be
called once need resched. Preemption timer will be reprogrammed if vCPU
is scheduled to a different pCPU. Then the preemption timer bit of vmcs02
will be set if L0 enable preemption timer to run L1 even if L1 doesn't
enable preemption timer to run L2.

This patch fix it by don't reprogram preemption timer of vmcs02 if L1's
vCPU is scheduled on diffent pCPU when we are in the way to vmresume
nested guest.
