Subject[PATCH v2 00/15] kvm: x86: Support AMD SVM AVIC w/ in-kernel irqchip mode
The 'commit 67034bb9dd5e ("KVM: SVM: Add irqchip_split() checks before
enabling AVIC")' was introduced to fix miscellaneous boot-hang issues
when enable AVIC. This is mainly due to AVIC hardware doest not #vmexit
on write to LAPIC EOI register resulting in-kernel PIC and IOAPIC to
wait and do not inject new interrupts (e.g. PIT).

This limits AVIC to only work with kernel_irqchip=split mode, which is
not currently enabled by default, and also required user-space to
support split irqchip model, which might not be the case.

The goal of this series is to enable AVIC to work in both irqchip modes.
by allowing AVIC to be deactivated temporary during runtime and fallback
to legacy interrupt injection mode (w/ vINTR and interrupt windows)
when needed, and then re-enabled subseqently.

Similar approach is also used to handle Hyper-V SynIC in the
'commit 5c919412fe61 ("kvm/x86: Hyper-V synthetic interrupt controller")',
where APICv is permanently disabled at runtime (currently broken for
AVIC, and fixed by this series).

In addition, currently when KVM disables APICv (e.g. running with
kernel_irqchip=on mode on AMD, or due to Hyper-V SyncIC mode), this happens
under the hood and often cause confusion to users. This will be addressed
in part 1 of this series.

This series contains three parts:
* Part 1: patch 1-4
Introduce APICv state enum and logic for keeping track of the state
for each vm, along with debugfs for checking to see if APICv is
enabled for a particular vm.

* Part 2: patch 5-11
Add support for activate/deactivate APICv at runtime

* Part 3: patch 12-15:
Provide workaround for AVIC EOI and allow enable AVIC w/

Pre-requisite Patch:
* commit b9c6ff94e43a ("iommu/amd: Re-factor guest virtual APIC
(de-)activation code")

This series has been tested against v5.2 as following:
* Booting Linux, FreeBSD, and Windows Server 2019 VMs upto 255 vCPUs
w/ qemu option "kernel-irqchip=on" and "-no-hpet".
* Pass-through Intel 10GbE NIC and run netperf in the VM.

Changes from V1: (
* Introduce APICv state enumeration
* Introduce KVM debugfs for APICv state
* Add synchronization logic for APICv state to prevent potential
race condition (per Jan's suggestion)
* Add support for activate/deactivate posted interrupt
(per Jan's suggestion)
* Remove callback functions for handling APIC ID, DFR and LDR update
(per Paolo's suggestion)
* Add workaround for handling EOI for in-kernel PIT and IOAPIC.
