Subject[PATCH v3 0/2] KVM: x86: hyper-v: make KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_HV_CPUID more useful
Changes since v2:
- Keep vCPU version of the ioctl intact but make it 'deprecated' in
api.rst [Paolo Bonzini]
- First two patches of v2 series already made it to kvm/queue

QEMU series using the feature:

Original description:

KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_HV_CPUID was initially implemented as a vCPU ioctl but
this is not very useful when VMM is just trying to query which Hyper-V
features are supported by the host prior to creating VM/vCPUs. The data
in KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_HV_CPUID is mostly static with a few exceptions but
it seems we can change this. Add support for KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_HV_CPUID as
a system ioctl as well.

QEMU specific description:
In some cases QEMU needs to collect the information about which Hyper-V
features are supported by KVM and pass it up the stack. For non-hyper-v
features this is done with system-wide KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_CPUID/
KVM_GET_MSRS ioctls but Hyper-V specific features don't get in the output
(as Hyper-V CPUIDs intersect with KVM's). In QEMU, CPU feature expansion
happens before any KVM vcpus are created so KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_HV_CPUID
can't be used in its current shape.

Vitaly Kuznetsov (2):
KVM: x86: hyper-v: allow KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_HV_CPUID as a system ioctl
KVM: selftests: test KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_HV_CPUID as a system ioctl
