Subject[PATCH v2 1/7] KVM: x86: Trace the original requested CPUID function in kvm_cpuid()
From: Jan Kiszka <>

Trace the requested CPUID function instead of the effective function,
e.g. if the requested function is out-of-range and KVM is emulating an
Intel CPU, as the intent of the tracepoint is to show if the output came
from the actual leaf as opposed to the max basic leaf via redirection.

Similarly, leave "found" as is, i.e. report that an entry was found if
and only if the requested entry was found.

Fixes: 43561123ab37 ("kvm: x86: Improve emulation of CPUID leaves 0BH and 1FH")
