KVM: improve comment on rcu use in irqfd_deassign

The RCU use in kvm_irqfd_deassign is tricky: we have rcu_assign_pointer
but no synchronize_rcu: synchronize_rcu is done by kvm_irq_routing_update

Avi Kivity [Thu, 3 Feb 2011 13:29:52 +0000]
KVM: SVM: check for progress after IRET interception

When we enable an NMI window, we ask for an IRET intercept, since
the IRET re-enables NMIs.  However, the IRET intercept happens before
the instruction executes, while the NMI window architecturally opens
afterwards.

To compensate for this mismatch, we only open the NMI window in the
following exit, assuming that the IRET has by then executed; however,
this assumption is not always correct; we may exit due to a host interrupt
or page fault, without having executed the instruction.

Fix by checking for forward progress by recording and comparing the IRET's
rip.  This is somewhat of a hack, since an unchaging rip does not mean that
no forward progress has been made, but is the simplest fix for now.

KVM: Fix race between nmi injection and enabling nmi window

The interrupt injection logic looks something like

  if an nmi is pending, and nmi injection allowed
    inject nmi
  if an nmi is pending
    request exit on nmi window

the problem is that "nmi is pending" can be set asynchronously by
the PIT; if it happens to fire between the two if statements, we
will request an nmi window even though nmi injection is allowed.  On
SVM, this has disasterous results, since it causes eflags.TF to be
set in random guest code.

The fix is simple; make nmi_pending synchronous using the standard
vcpu->requests mechanism; this ensures the code above is completely
synchronous wrt nmi_pending.

KVM: x86: handle guest access to BBL_CR_CTL3 MSR

A correction to Intel cpu model CPUID data (patch queued)
caused winxp to BSOD when booted with a Penryn model.
This was traced to the CPUID "model" field correction from
6 -> 23 (as is proper for a Penryn class of cpu).  Only in
this case does the problem surface.

The cause for this failure is winxp accessing the BBL_CR_CTL3
MSR which is unsupported by current kvm, appears to be a
legacy MSR not fully characterized yet existing in current
silicon, and is apparently carried forward in MSR space to
accommodate vintage code as here.  It is not yet conclusive
whether this MSR implements any of its legacy functionality
or is just an ornamental dud for compatibility.  While I
found no silicon version specific documentation link to
this MSR, a general description exists in Intel's developer's
reference which agrees with the functional behavior of
other bootloader/kernel code I've examined accessing
BBL_CR_CTL3.  Regrettably winxp appears to be setting bit #19
called out as "reserved" in the above document.

So to minimally accommodate this MSR, kvm msr get will provide
the equivalent mock data and kvm msr write will simply toss the
guest passed data without interpretation.  While this treatment
of BBL_CR_CTL3 addresses the immediate problem, the approach may
be modified pending clarification from Intel.

KVM: VMX: increase ple_gap default to 128

On some CPUs, a ple_gap of 41 is simply insufficient to ever trigger
PLE exits, even with the minimalistic PLE test from kvm-unit-tests.

http://git.kernel.org/?p=virt/kvm/kvm-unit-tests.git;a=commitdiff;h=eda71b28fa122203e316483b35f37aaacd42f545

For example, the Xeon X5670 CPU needs a ple_gap of at least 48 in
order to get pause loop exits:

# modprobe kvm_intel ple_gap=47
# taskset 1 /usr/local/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 \
  -device testdev,chardev=log -chardev stdio,id=log \

KVM: VMX: Save and restore tr selector across mode switches

When emulating real mode we play with tr hidden state, but leave
tr.selector alone.  That works well, except for save/restore, since
loading TR writes it to the hidden state in vmx->rmode.

Fix by also saving and restoring the tr selector; this makes things
more consistent and allows migration to work during the early
boot stages of Windows XP.

9 years agoDocumentation: update cgroup pid and cpuset information
Eric B Munson [Tue, 15 Mar 2011 23:12:18 +0000]
Documentation: update cgroup pid and cpuset information

The cgroup documentation does not specify how a process can be removed
from a particular group.  This patch adds a note at the end of the
simple example about how this is done.  Also, some cgroups (like
cpusets) require user input before a new group can be used.  This is
noted in the patch as well.
