Subject: [MODERATED] [PATCH v6 1/9] TAAv6 1
Date: Wed, 9 Oct 2019 16:22:56 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <=?utf-8?q?=3C4102a059c94384a1cbb2c1919eb446683cce9399=2E157065?= =?utf-8?q?8888=2Egit=2Epawan=2Ekumar=2Egupta=40linux=2Eintel=2Ecom=3E?=> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.1570658888.git.pawan.kumar.gupta@linux.intel.com>

Transactional Synchronization Extensions (TSX) may be used on certain
processors as part of a speculative side channel attack.  A microcode
update for existing processors that are vulnerable to this attack will
add a new MSR, IA32_TSX_CTRL to allow the system administrator the
option to disable TSX as one of the possible mitigations.  [Note that
future processors that are not vulnerable will also support the
IA32_TSX_CTRL MSR].  Add defines for the new IA32_TSX_CTRL MSR and its
bits.

TSX has two sub-features:

1. Restricted Transactional Memory (RTM) is an explicitly-used feature
   where new instructions begin and end TSX transactions.
2. Hardware Lock Elision (HLE) is implicitly used when certain kinds of
   "old" style locks are used by software.

Bit 7 of the IA32_ARCH_CAPABILITIES indicates the presence of the
IA32_TSX_CTRL MSR.

There are two control bits in IA32_TSX_CTRL MSR:

  Bit 0: When set it disables the Restricted Transactional Memory (RTM)
         sub-feature of TSX (will force all transactions to abort on the
	 XBEGIN instruction).

  Bit 1: When set it disables the enumeration of the RTM and HLE feature
         (i.e. it will make CPUID(EAX=7).EBX{bit4} and
         CPUID(EAX=7).EBX{bit11} read as 0).

The other TSX sub-feature, Hardware Lock Elision (HLE), is unconditionally
disabled but still enumerated as present by CPUID(EAX=7).EBX{bit4}.
