Subject: [PATCH v3 0/9] KVM: x86/pmu: Guest Architectural LBR Enabling
Date: Wed,  3 Mar 2021 21:57:46 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210303135756.1546253-1-like.xu@linux.intel.com> (raw)

Hi geniuses,

Please help review the new version of Arch LBR enabling patch set.

The Architectural Last Branch Records (LBRs) is publiced
in the 319433-040 release of Intel Architecture Instruction
Set Extensions and Future Features Programming Reference[0].

The main advantages for the Arch LBR users are [1]:
- Faster context switching due to XSAVES support and faster reset of
  LBR MSRs via the new DEPTH MSR
- Faster LBR read for a non-PEBS event due to XSAVES support, which
  lowers the overhead of the NMI handler.
- Linux kernel can support the LBR features without knowing the model
  number of the current CPU.

It's based on the kvm/queue tree plus two commits from kvm/intel tree:
- 'fea4ab260645 ("KVM: x86: Refresh CPUID on writes to MSR_IA32_XSS")'
- '0ccd14126cb2 ("KVM: x86: Report XSS as an MSR to be saved if there are supported features")'

Please check more details in each commit and feel free to comment.

v2->v3 Changelog:
- Add host patches (0001-0004) to support guest Arch LBR;
- Fix arch_lbr_depth_is_valid() check condition; [Sean]
- Fix usage of KVM_ARCH_LBR_CTL_MASK;
- Fix intel_pmu_legacy_freezing_lbrs_on_pmi();
- Reset GUEST_IA32_LBR_CTL in the vmx_vcpu_reset();
- Refine intel_pmu_lbr_is_compatible();
- Simplify lbr_enable check and its usage;
