Subject: [PATCH 18/43] KVM: nVMX: Don't rewrite GUEST_PML_INDEX during nested VM-Entry
Date: Thu, 13 Jun 2019 19:03:04 +0200
Message-ID: <1560445409-17363-19-git-send-email-pbonzini@redhat.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1560445409-17363-1-git-send-email-pbonzini@redhat.com>

From: Sean Christopherson <sean.j.christopherson@intel.com>

Emulation of GUEST_PML_INDEX for a nested VMM is a bit weird.  Because
L0 flushes the PML on every VM-Exit, the value in vmcs02 at the time of
VM-Enter is a constant -1, regardless of what L1 thinks/wants.

Fixes: 09abe32002665 ("KVM: nVMX: split pieces of prepare_vmcs02() to prepare_vmcs02_early()")
