Subject: [PATCH v2 1/4] x86/kvm: Add "nopvspin" parameter to disable PV spinlocks
Date: Mon, 30 Sep 2019 20:08:57 +0800
Message-ID: <1569845340-11884-2-git-send-email-zhenzhong.duan@oracle.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1569845340-11884-1-git-send-email-zhenzhong.duan@oracle.com>

There are cases where a guest tries to switch spinlocks to bare metal
behavior (e.g. by setting "xen_nopvspin" on XEN platform and
"hv_nopvspin" on HYPER_V).

That feature is missed on KVM, add a new parameter "nopvspin" to disable
PV spinlocks for KVM guest.

This new parameter is also used to replace "xen_nopvspin" and
"hv_nopvspin".

The global variable pvspin isn't defined as __initdata as it's used at
runtime by XEN guest.
