Subject: [PATCH v3 0/4] KVM: arm64: Assorted PMU emulation fixes
Date: Fri, 11 Oct 2019 13:39:50 +0100
Message-ID: <20191011123954.31378-1-maz@kernel.org> (raw)

I recently came across a number of PMU emulation bugs, all which can
result in unexpected behaviours in an unsuspecting guest. The first
two patches already have been discussed on the list, but I'm including
them here as part of a slightly longer series.

The third patch is new as of v2, and fixes a bug preventing chained
events from ever being used.

The last patch fixes an issue that has been here from day one, where
we confuse architectural overflow of a counter and perf sampling
period, and uses a terrible hack^W^W creative way to interact with the
underlying PMU driver so that we can reload the period when handling
the overflow.

* From v2 [1]
  - Dropped PMUv3 patch and moved the logic into the KVM code
  - Properly use UPDATE/RELOAD
  - Collected Andrew's RB
