KVM_GET_CPUID2 kvm ioctl is not very well documented, but the way it is
implemented in function kvm_vcpu_ioctl_get_cpuid2 suggests that even at
error path it will try to return number of entries to the caller. But
The dispatcher kvm vcpu ioctl dispatcher code in kvm_arch_vcpu_ioctl
ignores any output from this function if it sees the error return code.

It's very explicit by the code that it was designed to receive some
small number of entries to return E2BIG along with the corrected number.

This lost logic in the dispatcher code has been restored by removing the
lines that check for function return code and skip if error is found.
Without it, the ioctl caller will see both the number of entries and the
correct error.

In selftests relevant function vcpu_get_cpuid has also been modified to
utilize the number of cpuid entries returned along with errno E2BIG.

v4:
  - Added description to documentation of KVM_GET_CPUID2.
  - Copy back nent only if E2BIG is returned.
  - Fixed error code sign. 
  - Corrected version message

+
+Returns a full list of cpuid entries that are supported by this vcpu and were

+
+The userspace must specify the number of cpuid entries it is ready to accept
+from the kernel in the 'nent' field of 'struct kmv_cpuid'.
+
+The kernel will try to return all the cpuid entries it has in the response.
+If the userspace nent value is too small for the full response, the kernel will
+set the error code to -E2BIG, set the same 'nent' field to the actual number of
+cpuid_entries and return without writing back any entries to the userspace.
+The userspace can thus implement a two-call sequence, where the first call is
+made with nent set to 0 to read the number of entries from the kernel and
+use this response to allocate enough memory for a full response for the second
+call.
+
+The call cal also return with error code -EFAULT in case of other errors.

LOL, saying KVM_GET_CPUID2 was "designed" is definitely giving the KVM
forefathers the benefit of the doubt.

As I pointed out[*], copying the number of entries but not the entries themselves
is wrong.  All of my feedback on v1 still stands.

I was going to make a different joke, i.e. that KVM_GET_CPUID2 was 
indeed designed the way Valeriy described, but that design was forgotten 
soon after.

Really, this ioctl has been such a trainwreck that I think the only good 
solution here is to drop it.

should we discuss KVM_GET_CPUID3 which will work "normally"?

Is anybody using KVM_GET_CPUID2 at all?

As far as I understand only some testing within kernel now.
Though we have plans to expose it for QAPI as the series
in QEMU
  [PATCH 1/2] qapi: fix error handling for x-vz-query-cpu-model-cpuid
  [PATCH 2/2] qapi: blacklisted x-vz-query-cpu-model-cpuid in tests
is not coming in a good way.
The idea was to avoid manual code rework in QEMU and
expose collected model at least for debug.

All it all, some control over things set to the kernel as CPU modes
is needed. Without that I am feeling uncomfortable.

KVM_GET_CPUID2 as a VM ioctl cannot expose the whole truth about CPUID 
either, since it doesn't handle the TSX_CTRL_CPUID_CLEAR bit.  Given 
that QEMU doesn't need KVM_GET_CPUID2; it only needs to save whatever it 
passed to KVM_SET_CPUID2.

What if we instead deflect CPUID into user space so it can emulate it in 
whatever way it likes? Is the performance difference going to be 
relevant? Are people still using cpuid as barrier these days?

There's enough weirdness in CPUID (e.g. the magic redirection of unknown 
leaves to the highest Intel leaf) to make it relatively hard to 
implement correctly.  So I think it should remain in the kernel.

What else would they use (in ring 3 code)? Sure, serialize is coming
in Sapphire Rapids, but it will be 20+ years before kvm drops support
for CPUs without serialize.
