Subject: [PATCH] arm64/kvm: remove VMID rollover I-cache maintenance
Date: Tue,  6 Aug 2019 16:57:37 +0100
Message-ID: <20190806155737.39307-1-mark.rutland@arm.com> (raw)

For VPIPT I-caches, we need I-cache maintenance on VMID rollover to
avoid an ABA problem. Consider a single vCPU VM, with a pinned stage-2,
running with an idmap VA->IPA and idmap IPA->PA. If we don't do
maintenance on rollover:

        // VMID A
        Writes insn X to PA 0xF
        Invalidates PA 0xF (for VMID A)

        I$ contains [{A,F}->X]

        [VMID ROLLOVER]

        // VMID B
        Writes insn Y to PA 0xF
        Invalidates PA 0xF (for VMID B)

        I$ contains [{A,F}->X, {B,F}->Y]

        [VMID ROLLOVER]

        // VMID A
        I$ contains [{A,F}->X, {B,F}->Y]

        Unexpectedly hits stale I$ line {A,F}->X.

However, for PIPT and VIPT I-caches, the VMID doesn't affect lookup or
constrain maintenance. Given the VMID doesn't affect PIPT and VIPT
I-caches, and given VMID rollover is independent of changes to stage-2
mappings, I-cache maintenance cannot be necessary on VMID rollover for
PIPT or VIPT I-caches.

This patch removes the maintenance on rollover for VIPT and PIPT
I-caches. At the same time, the unnecessary colons are removed from the
asm statement to make it more legible.
