Subject: [PATCH 0/8] KVM: VMX: Implement nested TSC scaling
Date: Thu,  6 May 2021 10:32:20 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210506103228.67864-1-ilstam@mailbox.org> (raw)

From: Ilias Stamatis <ilstam@amazon.com>

KVM currently supports hardware-assisted TSC scaling but only for L1 and it
doesn't expose the feature to nested guests. This patch series adds support for
nested TSC scaling and allows both L1 and L2 to be scaled with different
scaling factors.

When scaling and offsetting is applied, the TSC for the guest is calculated as:

(TSC * multiplier >> 48) + offset

With nested scaling the values in VMCS01 and VMCS12 need to be merged
together and stored in VMCS02.

The VMCS02 values are calculated as follows:

offset_02 = ((offset_01 * mult_12) >> 48) + offset_12
mult_02 = (mult_01 * mult_12) >> 48

The last patch of the series adds a KVM selftest.

Ilias Stamatis (8):
  KVM: VMX: Add a TSC multiplier field in VMCS12
  KVM: X86: Store L1's TSC scaling ratio in 'struct kvm_vcpu_arch'
  KVM: X86: Pass an additional 'L1' argument to kvm_scale_tsc()
  KVM: VMX: Adjust the TSC-related VMCS fields on L2 entry and exit
  KVM: X86: Move tracing outside write_l1_tsc_offset()
  KVM: VMX: Make vmx_write_l1_tsc_offset() work with nested TSC scaling
  KVM: VMX: Expose TSC scaling to L2
  KVM: selftests: x86: Add vmx_nested_tsc_scaling_test
