KVM: MMU: prepopulate guest pages after write-protecting

Zdenek reported a bug where a looping "dmsetup status" eventually hangs
on SMP guests.

The problem is that kvm_mmu_get_page() prepopulates the shadow MMU
before write protecting the guest page tables. By doing so, it leaves a
window open where the guest can mark a pte as present while the host has
shadow cached such pte as "notrap". Accesses to such address will fault
in the guest without the host having a chance to fix the situation.

Fix by moving the write protection before the pte prefetch.

Christian Borntraeger [Tue, 25 Mar 2008 17:47:46 +0000]
s390: KVM guest: virtio device support, and kvm hypercalls

This patch implements kvm guest kernel support for paravirtualized devices
and contains two parts:
o a basic virtio stub using virtio_ring and external interrupts and hypercalls
o full hypercall implementation in kvm_para.h

Currently we dont have PCI on s390. Making virtio_pci usable for s390 seems
more complicated that providing an own stub. This virtio stub is similar to
the lguest one, the memory for the descriptors and the device detection is made
via additional mapped memory on top of the guest storage. We use an external
interrupt with extint code 0x2603 for host->guest notification.

The hypercall definition uses the diag instruction for issuing a hypercall. The
parameters are written in R2-R7, the hypercall number is written in R1. This is
similar to the system call ABI (svc) which can use R1 for the number and R2-R6
for the parameters.

KVM: s390: intercepts for diagnose instructions

This patch introduces interpretation of some diagnose instruction intercepts.
Diagnose is our classic architected way of doing a hypercall. This patch
features the following diagnose codes:
- vm storage size, that tells the guest about its memory layout
- time slice end, which is used by the guest to indicate that it waits
  for a lock and thus cannot use up its time slice in a useful way
- ipl functions, which a guest can use to reset and reboot itself

In order to implement ipl functions, we also introduce an exit reason that
causes userspace to perform various resets on the virtual machine. All resets
are described in the principles of operation book, except KVM_S390_RESET_IPL
which causes a reboot of the machine.

KVM: s390: interprocessor communication via sigp

This patch introduces in-kernel handling of _some_ sigp interprocessor
signals (similar to ipi).
kvm_s390_handle_sigp() decodes the sigp instruction and calls individual
handlers depending on the operation requested:
- sigp sense tries to retrieve information such as existence or running state
  of the remote cpu
- sigp emergency sends an external interrupt to the remove cpu
- sigp stop stops a remove cpu
- sigp stop store status stops a remote cpu, and stores its entire internal
  state to the cpus lowcore
- sigp set arch sets the architecture mode of the remote cpu. setting to
  ESAME (s390x 64bit) is accepted, setting to ESA/S390 (s390, 31 or 24 bit) is
  denied, all others are passed to userland
- sigp set prefix sets the prefix register of a remote cpu

For implementation of this, the stop intercept indication starts to get reused
on purpose: a set of action bits defines what to do once a cpu gets stopped:
ACTION_STOP_ON_STOP  really stops the cpu when a stop intercept is recognized
ACTION_STORE_ON_STOP stores the cpu status to lowcore when a stop intercept is

KVM: s390: interrupt subsystem, cpu timer, waitpsw

This patch contains the s390 interrupt subsystem (similar to in kernel apic)
including timer interrupts (similar to in-kernel-pit) and enabled wait
(similar to in kernel hlt).

In order to achieve that, this patch also introduces intercept handling
for instruction intercepts, and it implements load control instructions.

This patch introduces an ioctl KVM_S390_INTERRUPT which is valid for both
the vm file descriptors and the vcpu file descriptors. In case this ioctl is
issued against a vm file descriptor, the interrupt is considered floating.
Floating interrupts may be delivered to any virtual cpu in the configuration.

The following interrupts are supported:
SIGP STOP       - interprocessor signal that stops a remote cpu
SIGP SET PREFIX - interprocessor signal that sets the prefix register of a
                  (stopped) remote cpu
INT EMERGENCY   - interprocessor interrupt, usually used to signal need_reshed
                  and for smp_call_function() in the guest.
PROGRAM INT     - exception during program execution such as page fault, illegal
                  instruction and friends
RESTART         - interprocessor signal that starts a stopped cpu
INT VIRTIO      - floating interrupt for virtio signalisation
INT SERVICE     - floating interrupt for signalisations from the system
                  service processor

struct kvm_s390_interrupt, which is submitted as ioctl parameter when injecting
an interrupt, also carrys parameter data for interrupts along with the interrupt
type. Interrupts on s390 usually have a state that represents the current
operation, or identifies which device has caused the interruption on s390.

kvm_s390_handle_wait() does handle waitpsw in two flavors: in case of a
disabled wait (that is, disabled for interrupts), we exit to userspace. In case
of an enabled wait we set up a timer that equals the cpu clock comparator value
and sleep on a wait queue.

This path introduces handling of sie intercepts in three flavors: Intercepts

or passed to userspace with corresponding data in struct kvm_run in case
kvm_handle_sie_intercept() returns -ENOTSUPP.
In case of partial execution in kernel with the need of userspace support,
kvm_handle_sie_intercept() may choose to set up struct kvm_run and return
-EREMOTE.

The trivial intercept reasons are handled in this patch:
handle_noop() just does nothing for intercepts that don't require our support
  at all
handle_stop() is called when a cpu enters stopped state, and it drops out to
  userland after updating our vcpu state
handle_validity() faults in the cpu lowcore if needed, or passes the request

11 years agos390: KVM preparation: host memory management changes for s390 kvm
Christian Borntraeger [Tue, 25 Mar 2008 17:47:12 +0000]
s390: KVM preparation: host memory management changes for s390 kvm

This patch changes the s390 memory management defintions to use the pgste field
for dirty and reference bit tracking of host and guest code. Usually on s390,
dirty and referenced are tracked in storage keys, which belong to the physical
page. This changes with virtualization: The guest and host dirty/reference bits
are defined to be the logical OR of the values for the mapping and the physical
page. This patch implements the necessary changes in pgtable.h for s390.

There is a common code change in mm/rmap.c, the call to
page_test_and_clear_young must be moved. This is a no-op for all
architecture but s390. page_referenced checks the referenced bits for
the physiscal page and for all mappings:
o The physical page is checked with page_test_and_clear_young.
o The mappings are checked with ptep_test_and_clear_young and friends.

Without pgstes (the current implementation on Linux s390) the physical page
check is implemented but the mapping callbacks are no-ops because dirty
and referenced are not tracked in the s390 page tables. The pgstes introduces
guest and host dirty and reference bits for s390 in the host mapping. These
mapping must be checked before page_test_and_clear_young resets the reference
bit.

11 years agos390: KVM preparation: provide hook to enable pgstes in user pagetable
Carsten Otte [Tue, 25 Mar 2008 17:47:10 +0000]
s390: KVM preparation: provide hook to enable pgstes in user pagetable

The SIE instruction on s390 uses the 2nd half of the page table page to
virtualize the storage keys of a guest. This patch offers the s390_enable_sie
function, which reorganizes the page tables of a single-threaded process to
reserve space in the page table:
s390_enable_sie makes sure that the process is single threaded and then uses
dup_mm to create a new mm with reorganized page tables. The old mm is freed
and the process has now a page status extended field after every page table.

Code that wants to exploit pgstes should SELECT CONFIG_PGSTE.

This patch has a small common code hit, namely making dup_mm non-static.

Edit (Carsten): I've modified Martin's patch, following Jeremy Fitzhardinge's
review feedback. Now we do have the prototype for dup_mm in
include/linux/sched.h. Following Martin's suggestion, s390_enable_sie() does now
call task_lock() to prevent race against ptrace modification of mm_users.
