Subject[PATCH 0/8] KVM: x86: Interrupt-based mechanism for async_pf 'page present' notifications
Date
Concerns were expressed around (ab)using #PF for KVM's async_pf mechanism,
it seems that re-using #PF exception for a PV mechanism wasn't a great
idea after all. The Grand Plan is to switch to using e.g. #VE for 'page
not present' events and normal APIC interrupts for 'page ready' events.
This series does the later.

Changes since RFC:
- Using #PF for 'page ready' is deprecated and removed [Paolo Bonzini]
- 'reason' field in 'struct kvm_vcpu_pv_apf_data' is not used for 'page ready'
notifications and 'pageready_token' is not used for 'page not present' events
[Paolo Bonzini]
- Renamed MSR_KVM_ASYNC_PF2 -> MSR_KVM_ASYNC_PF_INT [Peter Xu]
- Drop 'enabled' field from MSR_KVM_ASYNC_PF_INT [Peter Xu]
- Other minor changes supporting the above.

Vitaly Kuznetsov (8):
Revert "KVM: async_pf: Fix #DF due to inject "Page not Present" and
"Page Ready" exceptions simultaneously"
KVM: x86: extend struct kvm_vcpu_pv_apf_data with token info
KVM: introduce kvm_read_guest_offset_cached()
KVM: x86: interrupt based APF page-ready event delivery
KVM: x86: acknowledgment mechanism for async pf page ready
notifications
KVM: x86: announce KVM_FEATURE_ASYNC_PF_INT
KVM: x86: Switch KVM guest to using interrupts for page ready APF
delivery
KVM: x86: drop KVM_PV_REASON_PAGE_READY case from
kvm_handle_page_fault()
