and an attempt to restore the id register with the other version would fail.

(This is still mixing VM and VCPU)

.. on each vcpu?

'guests' here suggests its a VM property. If you set it on some VCPU but not others KVM
will generate undefs instead of enabling the feature. (which is the right thing to do)

I think it needs to be clear this is a per-vcpu property.

Just address authentication? I agree with Mark we should have two bits to match what gets
exposed to EL0. One would then be address, the other generic.

This isn't used from world-switch, could it be moved to guest.c?

(It might be easier on the reviewer to move these mechanical changes to an earlier patch)


Looks good,

Thanks,

James
