Subject[PATCH v4 00/10] Independent per-CPU data section for nVHE
Introduce '' as part of ongoing effort to make nVHE
hyp code self-contained and independent of the rest of the kernel.

Main benefits:
* independent nVHE per-CPU data section that can be unmapped from host,
* more robust linking of nVHE hyp code,
* no need for hyp-specific macros to access per-CPU variables.

The series is structured as follows:

- patch 1: Improve existing hyp build rules. This could be sent and merged
independently of per-CPU but this series builds on it.

- patches 2-3: Minor cleanups.

- patches 4-5: Replace hyp helpers for accessing per-CPU variables
with common helpers modified to work correctly in hyp. Per-CPU
variables can now be accessed with one API anywhere.

- patches 6-8: Where VHE and nVHE use per-CPU variables defined in
kernel proper, move their definitions to hyp/ where they are
duplicated and owned by VHE/nVHE, respectively. Non-VHE hyp code
now refers only to per-CPU variables defined in its source files.
Helpers are added so that kernel proper can continue to access
nVHE hyp variables, same way as it does with other nVHE symbols.

- patches 9-10: Introduce '' ELF section and allocate
memory for every CPU core during KVM init. All nVHE per-CPU state
is now grouped together in ELF and in memory. Introducing a new
per-CPU variable does not require adding new memory mappings any
more. nVHE hyp code cannot accidentally refer to kernel-proper
per-CPU data as it only has the pointer to its own per-CPU memory.

Patches are rebased on v5.9-rc6 and available in branch 'topic/percpu-v4' at:

For maintainers: In case of interest, there are patches that remove the need
for redefining macros under DEBUG_PREEMPT available at the same repo, branch
'topic/percpu-v3-debug-preempt'. Since they are non-trivial, I am not going
to post them here so late in the 5.10 window. I plan to post them for 5.11
when they will also be useful for other patches.

Changes v3 -> v4:
* Drop patch that marked pages allocated for hyp reserved
* Copy arm64_ssbd_callback_required at cpu_init_hyp_mode
* Use read_sysreg in __hyp_my_cpu_offset
* Simplify per-CPU region allocation code
* Use same subsection name regex as other kernel linker scripts
* Rename helper per-CPU macros
* Add .gitignore for hyp linker script

Changes v2 -> v3:
* Use PERCPU_INPUT in hyp.ld instead of modifying PERCPU_SECTION
* Only pass linker script once to LD (fix error message)
* Renamed '.hyp.o' to '.nvhe.o'
* Use __KVM_VHE_HYPERVISOR__ to select TPIDR_EL2 instead of alternatives
* Move all prefixing-related macros to hyp_image.h

Changes v1 -> v2:
* partially link hyp code, add linker script
