KVM: VMX: VMCLEAR/VMPTRLD usage changes
Dongxiao Xu [Tue, 11 May 2010 10:29:45 +0000 (18:29 +0800)]
Originally VMCLEAR/VMPTRLD is called on vcpu migration. To
support hosted VMM coexistance, VMCLEAR is executed on vcpu
schedule out, and VMPTRLD is executed on vcpu schedule in.
This could also eliminate the IPI when doing VMCLEAR.
