Subject: [PATCH v4 7/9] arm/arm64: kvm: pmu: Make overflow handler NMI safe
Date: Wed, 17 Jul 2019 09:17:10 +0100
Message-ID: <1563351432-55652-8-git-send-email-julien.thierry@arm.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1563351432-55652-1-git-send-email-julien.thierry@arm.com>

When using an NMI for the PMU interrupt, taking any lock might cause a
deadlock. The current PMU overflow handler in KVM takes locks when
trying to wake up a vcpu.

When overflow handler is called by an NMI, defer the vcpu waking in an
irq_work queue.
