Subject[PATCH V2 2/3] KVM/Hyper-V: Add new KVM cap KVM_CAP_HYPERV_DIRECT_TLBFLUSH
Date
From: Tianyu Lan <Tianyu.Lan@microsoft.com>

This patch adds new KVM cap KVM_CAP_HYPERV_DIRECT_TLBFLUSH and let
user space to enable direct tlb flush function when only Hyper-V
hypervsior capability is exposed to VM. This patch also adds
enable_direct_tlbflush callback in the struct kvm_x86_ops and
platforms may use it to implement direct tlb flush support.

Signed-off-by: Tianyu Lan <Tianyu.Lan@microsoft.com>

Change since v1:
Update description of KVM_CAP_HYPERV_DIRECT_TLBFLUSH
in the KVM API doc.

+This capability indicates that KVM running on top of Hyper-V hypervisor
+enables Direct TLB flush for its guests meaning that TLB flush
+hypercalls are handled by Level 0 hypervisor (Hyper-V) bypassing KVM.
+Due to the different ABI for hypercall parameters between Hyper-V and
+KVM, enabling this capability effectively disables all hypercall
+handling by KVM (as some KVM hypercall may be mistakenly treated as TLB
+flush hypercalls by Hyper-V) so userspace should disable KVM identification
+in CPUID and only exposes Hyper-V identification. In this case, guest
+thinks it's running on Hyper-V and only uses Hyper-V hypercalls.
