Subject[PATCH] KVM: VMX: Forbid userspace MSR filters for x2APIC
Date
Allowing userspace to intercept reads to x2APIC MSRs when APICV is
fully enabled for the guest simply can't work. But more in general,
the LAPIC could be set to in-kernel after the MSR filter is setup
and allowing accesses by userspace would be very confusing.

We could in principle allow userspace to intercept reads and writes to TPR,
and writes to EOI and SELF_IPI, but while that could be made it work, it
would still be silly.

If this ioctl has never been invoked, MSR accesses are not guarded and the
default KVM in-kernel emulation behavior is fully preserved.

+filtering. In that mode, ``KVM_MSR_FILTER_DEFAULT_DENY`` is invalid and causes
+an error.

As soon as the filtering is in place, every MSR access is processed through
the filtering except for accesses to the x2APIC MSRs (from 0x800 to 0x8ff);
x2APIC MSRs are always allowed, independent of the ``default_allow`` setting,
and their behavior depends on the ``X2APIC_ENABLE`` bit of the APIC base
register.

-If a bit is within one of the defined ranges, read and write
-accesses are guarded by the bitmap's value for the MSR index. If it is not
-defined in any range, whether MSR access is rejected is determined by the flags
-field in the kvm_msr_filter struct: ``KVM_MSR_FILTER_DEFAULT_ALLOW`` and
-``KVM_MSR_FILTER_DEFAULT_DENY``.

Each bitmap range specifies a range of MSRs to potentially allow access on.
