Subject[PATCH 5.8 060/177] KVM: x86: always allow writing 0 to MSR_KVM_ASYNC_PF_EN
Date
From: Vitaly Kuznetsov <vkuznets@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit d831de177217cd494bfb99f2c849a0d40c2a7890 ]

Even without in-kernel LAPIC we should allow writing '0' to
MSR_KVM_ASYNC_PF_EN as we're not enabling the mechanism. In
particular, QEMU with 'kernel-irqchip=off' fails to start
a guest with

qemu-system-x86_64: error: failed to set MSR 0x4b564d02 to 0x0

Fixes: 9d3c447c72fb2 ("KVM: X86: Fix async pf caused null-ptr-deref")
