Subject[PATCH v4 00/10] x86/split_lock: Add feature split lock detection support in kvm
This series aims to add the virtualization of split lock detection for
guest, while containing some fixes of native kernel split lock handling.

Note, this series is based on the kernel patch[1].

Patch 1 is new added one in this series, that is the enhancement and fix
for kernel split lock detction. It ensure X86_FEATURE_SPLIT_LOCK_DETECT
flag is set after verifying the feature is really supported.
And it explicitly turn off split lock when sld_off instead of assuming
BIOS/firmware leaves it cleared.

Patch 2 optimizes the runtime MSR accessing.

Patch 3-5 are the preparation for enabling split lock detection
virtualization in KVM.

Patch 6-7 fixes the issue in kvm emulator and guest when host truns
split lock detect on.

Patch 8-10 implement the virtualization of split lock detection in kvm.


- Add patch 1 to rework the initialization flow of split lock
- Drop percpu MSR_TEST_CTRL cache, just use a static variable to cache
the reserved/unused bit of MSR_TEST_CTRL. [Sean]
- Add new option for split_lock_detect kernel param.
- Changlog refinement. [Sean]
- Add a new patch to enable MSR_TEST_CTRL for intel guest. [Sean]

Xiaoyao Li (10):
x86/split_lock: Rework the initialization flow of split lock detection
x86/split_lock: Avoid runtime reads of the TEST_CTRL MSR
x86/split_lock: Re-define the kernel param option for
x86/split_lock: Export handle_user_split_lock()
x86/split_lock: Add and export several functions for KVM
kvm: x86: Emulate split-lock access as a write
kvm: vmx: Extend VMX's #AC interceptor to handle split lock #AC
happens in guest
kvm: x86: Emulate MSR IA32_CORE_CAPABILITIES
kvm: vmx: Enable MSR_TEST_CTRL for intel guest
x86: vmx: virtualize split lock detection
