Subject: [PATCH v3 1/3] KVM: arm64: Print warning when cpu erratum can cause guests to deadlock
Date: Fri, 17 Jul 2020 14:52:31 -0600
Message-ID: <20200717205233.903344-2-robh@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200717205233.903344-1-robh@kernel.org>

If guests don't have certain CPU erratum workarounds implemented, then
there is a possibility a guest can deadlock the system. IOW, only trusted
guests should be used on systems with the erratum.

This is the case for Cortex-A57 erratum 832075.
