Subject: [RESEND PATCH v4 00/10] KVM: x86/pmu: Guest Architectural LBR Enabling
Date: Mon, 10 May 2021 16:15:24 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210510081535.94184-1-like.xu@linux.intel.com> (raw)

Hi geniuses,

A new kernel cycle has begun, and this version looks promising. 

From the end user's point of view, the usage of Arch LBR is the same as
the legacy LBR we have merged in the mainline, but it is much faster.

The Architectural Last Branch Records (LBRs) is published 
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.

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

v13->v13 RESEND Changelog:
- Rebase to kvm/queue tree tag: kvm-5.13-2;
- Includes two XSS dependency patches from kvm/intel tree;

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;
