Subject[RFC PATCH v1 00/10] Add AMD SEV guest live migration support
Date
The series add support for AMD SEV guest live migration commands. To protect the
confidentiality of an SEV protected guest memory while in transit we need to
use the SEV commands defined in SEV API spec [1].

SEV guest VMs have the concept of private and shared memory. Private memory
is encrypted with the guest-specific key, while shared memory may be encrypted
with hypervisor key. The commands provided by the SEV FW are meant to be used
for the private memory only. The patch series introduces a new hypercall.
The guest OS can use this hypercall to notify the page encryption status.
If the page is encrypted with guest specific-key then we use SEV command during
the migration. If page is not encrypted then fallback to default.

The patch adds a new ioctl KVM_GET_PAGE_ENC_BITMAP. The ioctl can be used
by the qemu to get the page encrypted bitmap. Qemu can consult this bitmap
during the migration to know whether the page is encrypted.

[1] https://developer.amd.com/wp-content/resources/55766.PDF

The series is tested with the Qemu, I am in process of cleaning
up the Qemu code and will submit soon.

While implementing the migration I stumbled on the follow question:

- Since there is a guest OS changes required to support the migration,
so how do we know whether guest OS is updated? Should we extend KVM
capabilities/feature bits to check this?

TODO:
- add an ioctl to build encryption bitmap. The encryption bitmap is built during
the guest bootup/execution. We should provide an ioctl so that destination
can build the bitmap as it receives the pages.
- reset the bitmap on guest reboot.
