Clang definitely miscompiles the asm, the indirect call operates on the
EFLAGS value, not on @entry as expected. It looks like clang doesn't honor
ASM_CALL_CONSTRAINT, which effectively tells the compiler that %rsp is
getting clobbered, e.g. the "mov %r14,0x8(%rsp)" is loading @entry for
"callq *0x8(%rsp)", which breaks because of asm's pushes.

clang:

kvm_before_interrupt(vcpu);

asm volatile(
ffffffff811b798e: 4c 89 74 24 08 mov %r14,0x8(%rsp)
ffffffff811b7993: 48 89 e0 mov %rsp,%rax
ffffffff811b7996: 48 83 e4 f0 and $0xfffffffffffffff0,%rsp
ffffffff811b799a: 6a 18 pushq $0x18
ffffffff811b799c: 50 push %rax
ffffffff811b799d: 9c pushfq
ffffffff811b799e: 6a 10 pushq $0x10
ffffffff811b79a0: ff 54 24 08 callq *0x8(%rsp) <--------- calls the EFLAGS value
kvm_after_interrupt():


gcc:
kvm_before_interrupt(vcpu);

asm volatile(
ffffffff8118e17c: 48 89 e0 mov %rsp,%rax
ffffffff8118e17f: 48 83 e4 f0 and $0xfffffffffffffff0,%rsp
ffffffff8118e183: 6a 18 pushq $0x18
ffffffff8118e185: 50 push %rax
ffffffff8118e186: 9c pushfq
ffffffff8118e187: 6a 10 pushq $0x10
ffffffff8118e189: ff d3 callq *%rbx <-------- calls @entry
kvm_after_interrupt():
