Subject: [PATCH v2 5/6] KVM/nVMX: Set the CPU_BASED_USE_MSR_BITMAPS if we have a valid L02 MSR bitmap
Date: Sat, 10 Feb 2018 23:39:26 +0000
Message-ID: <1518305967-31356-6-git-send-email-dwmw@amazon.co.uk> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1518305967-31356-1-git-send-email-dwmw@amazon.co.uk>

From: KarimAllah Ahmed <karahmed@amazon.de>

We either clear the CPU_BASED_USE_MSR_BITMAPS and end up intercepting all
MSR accesses or create a valid L02 MSR bitmap and use that. This decision
has to be made every time we evaluate whether we are going to generate the
L02 MSR bitmap.

Before commit 086e7d4118cc ("KVM: VMX: Allow direct access to MSR_IA32_SPEC_CTRL")
this was probably OK since the decision was always identical. This is no
longer the case now since the MSR bitmap might actually change once we
decide to not intercept SPEC_CTRL and PRED_CMD.
