Subject[PATCH v3 0/9] KVM: Move x86 init ops to separate struct
Date
The non-x86 part of this series is wholly contained in patch 01.  Compared
to other recent kvm-wide changes, this one is very straightforward (famous
last words).

Like a few other architectures, e.g. PPC, x86 uses a set of global hooks
to call back into vendor code on demand. A handlful of the x86 hooks are
used only within the scope of kvm_init(). This series moves the init-only
hooks to a separate struct, partly to clean up the code a bit, but mainly
so that the runtime hooks can be made available only after the x86 vendor
has completed its ->hardware_setup(). While working on a different series
I spent a fair bit of time scratching my as to why a kvm_x86_ops wasn't
working, and eventually realized VMX's callback wasn't "ready" because the
vmcs_config hadn't yet been populated.

Due to lack of a cross-compiling setup, the non-x86 changes in patch 01
are untested.

v3:
- Rebase to kvm/queue, d55c9d4009c7 ("KVM: nSVM: check for EFER ... ").
Conflicts galore, but all mechanical in nature.
- Drop an SVM patch that was obsoleted by kvm/queue.
- Collect an ack. [Marc]

v2:
- Rebase to kvm/queue, 2c2787938512 ("KVM: selftests: Stop ...")
- Collect tags. [Cornelia]
- Add a patch to make kvm_x86_ops its own instance and copy
{vmx,svm}_x86_ops by value, which saves a memory access on every
invocation of a kvm_x86_ops hook. [Paolo]
- Add patches to tag {vmx,svm}_x86_ops as __initdata after they're
copied by value.


Sean Christopherson (9):
KVM: Pass kvm_init()'s opaque param to additional arch funcs
KVM: x86: Move init-only kvm_x86_ops to separate struct
KVM: VMX: Move hardware_setup() definition below vmx_x86_ops
KVM: VMX: Configure runtime hooks using vmx_x86_ops
KVM: x86: Set kvm_x86_ops only after ->hardware_setup() completes
KVM: x86: Copy kvm_x86_ops by value to eliminate layer of indirection
KVM: x86: Drop __exit from kvm_x86_ops' hardware_unsetup()
KVM: VMX: Annotate vmx_x86_ops as __initdata
KVM: SVM: Annotate svm_x86_ops as __initdata
