SubjectRe: [PATCH v6 12/20] kvm/vmx: Emulate MSR TEST_CTL

Errm? If the MSR_TEST_CTL is exposed to the guest via CPUID then the
rdmsr() in the guest is not supposed to fail just because
CORE_CAP_SPLIT_LOCK_DETECT is not set.

vmx->msr_test_ctl holds the proper value, which is either 0 or
CORE_CAP_SPLIT_LOCK_DETECT until more bits are supported.

So the chek needs to be guest_cpuid_has(X86_FEATURE_CORE_CAPABILITY).

Again, this wants to be a check for the availability of the MSR in the
guest cpuid and not to the CORE_CAP_SPLIT_LOCK_DETECT magic bit.

and this one wants to be:

if (data & vmx->msr_test_ctl_mask)

so additional bits can be enabled later on at exactly one point in the
code, i.e. during vm init.

Yikes. So on hosts which do not have MSR_TEST_CTL this takes a fault on
every VM enter. The host knows whether it has this MSR or not.

Even if it exists there is no point to do the rdmsr on every vmenter. The
value should be cached per cpu. It only changes when:

1) #AC triggers in kernel space

2) The sysfs knob is flipped

#1 It happens either _BEFORE_ or _AFTER_ atomic_switch_msr_test_ctl(). In
both cases the cached value is correct in atomic_switch_msr_test_ctl().

If it happens _AFTER_ atomic_switch_msr_test_ctl() then the VMEXIT will
restore the enabled bit, but there is nothing you can do about that.

#2 CANNOT happen in the context of vcpu_run().

So this wants to be:

host_msr_test_ctl = this_cpu_read(msr_test_ctl_cache);

if (!boot_cpu_has(X86_FEATURE_CORE_CAPABILITY))
return 0;

Why?

That's completely wrong. X86_FEATURE_SPLIT_LOCK_DETECT is set when the
capability is enumerated in CPUID or it's set via the FMS quirk.

So:
data = 0;
> + if (boot_cpu_has(X86_FEATURE_SPLIT_LOCK_DETECT))

is absolutely sufficient.

Thanks,
