Subject: [PATCH v2 3/6] KVM: arm64: Make indirect vectors preamble behaviour symmetric
Date: Mon, 10 Jun 2019 17:24:24 +0100
Message-ID: <20190610162427.115910-4-james.morse@arm.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190610162427.115910-1-james.morse@arm.com>

The KVM indirect vectors support is a little complicated. Different CPUs
may use different exception vectors for KVM that are generated at boot.
Adding new instructions involves checking all the possible combinations
do the right thing.

To make changes here easier to review lets state what we expect of the
  1. The first vector run, must always run the preamble.
  2. Patching the head or tail of the vector shouldn't remove
     preamble instructions.

Today, this is easy as we only have one instruction in the preamble.
Change the unpatched tail of the indirect vector so that it always
runs this, regardless of patching.

New for v2.
