Subject[PATCH v6 0/8] x86/split_lock: Fix and virtualization of split lock detection
So sorry for the noise that I forgot to CC the maillist.

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 1-3 are x86
kernel patches that based on the linux/master branch. Patch 4-8 are kvm
patches that based on the kvm/queue branch.

Patch 1 is the fix and enhancement for kernel split lock detction. It
ensures X86_FEATURE_SPLIT_LOCK_DETECT flag is set only when feature does
exist and not disabled on kernel params. 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 are the preparation for enabling split lock detection
virtualization in KVM.

Patch 4 fixes the issue that malicious guest may exploit kvm emulator to
attcact host kernel.

Patch 5 handles guest's split lock when host turns split lock detect on.

Patch 6-8 implement the virtualization of split lock detection in kvm.


Changes in v6:
- Drop the sld_not_exist flag and use X86_FEATURE_SPLIT_LOCK_DETECT to
check whether need to init split lock detection. [tglx]
- Use tglx's method to verify the existence of split lock detectoin.
- small optimization of sld_update_msr() that the default value of
msr_test_ctrl_cache has split_lock_detect bit cleared.
- Drop the patch3 in v5 that introducing kvm_only option. [tglx]
- Rebase patch4-8 to kvm/queue.
- use the new kvm-cpu-cap to expose X86_FEATURE_CORE_CAPABILITIES in
Patch 6.

Changes in v5:
- Use X86_FEATURE_SPLIT_LOCK_DETECT flag in kvm to ensure split lock
detection is really supported.
- Add and export sld related helper functions in their related usecase
kvm patches.

Changes in v4:
- 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 (8):
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: Export handle_user_split_lock()
kvm: x86: Emulate split-lock access as a write in emulator
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
kvm: vmx: virtualize split lock detection
