Subject[PATCH 5.1 104/121] KVM: x86/mmu: Allocate PAE root array when using SVMs 32-bit NPT
Date
From: Sean Christopherson <sean.j.christopherson@intel.com>

commit b6b80c78af838bef17501416d5d383fedab0010a upstream.

SVM's Nested Page Tables (NPT) reuses x86 paging for the host-controlled
page walk. For 32-bit KVM, this means PAE paging is used even when TDP
is enabled, i.e. the PAE root array needs to be allocated.

Fixes: ee6268ba3a68 ("KVM: x86: Skip pae_root shadow allocation if tdp enabled")
