Subject: [PATCH v4 00/11] KVM: x86/pmu: Guest Architectural LBR Enabling
Date: Sun, 14 Mar 2021 23:52:13 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210314155225.206661-1-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.

v3->v4 Changelog:
- Add one more host patch to reuse ARCH_LBR_CTL_MASK;
- Add reserve_lbr_buffers() instead of using GFP_ATOMIC;
- Fia a bug in the arch_lbr_depth_is_valid();
- Add LBR_CTL_EN to unify DEBUGCTLMSR_LBR and ARCH_LBR_CTL_LBREN;
- Add vmx->host_lbrctlmsr to save/restore host values;
- Add KVM_SUPPORTED_XSS to refactoring supported_xss;
- Clear Arch_LBR ans its XSS bit if it's not supported;
- Add negative testing to the related kvm-unit-tests;
- Refine code and commit messages;
