Now that all extant hypercalls that can use XMM registers (based on
spec) for input/outputs are patched to support them, we can start
advertising this feature to guests.

TLFS 6.0b states that there are two distinct bits for input and output:

CPUID Leaf 0x40000003.EDX:
Bit 4: support for passing hypercall input via XMM registers is available.
Bit 15: support for returning hypercall output via XMM registers is available.

and HV_X64_HYPERCALL_PARAMS_XMM_AVAILABLE is not currently used
anywhere, I'd suggest we just rename 

HV_X64_HYPERCALL_PARAMS_XMM_AVAILABLE to HV_X64_HYPERCALL_XMM_INPUT_AVAILABLE
and add HV_X64_HYPERCALL_XMM_OUTPUT_AVAILABLE (bit 15).

That is how I had it initially; but then noticed that we would never
need to use either of them separately. So it seemed like a reasonable
abstraction to put them together.

Actually, we may. In theory, KVM userspace may decide to expose just
one of these two to the guest as it is not obliged to copy everything
from KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_HV_CPUID so we will need separate
guest_cpuid_has() checks.

(This reminds me of something I didn't see in your series:
we need to check that XMM hypercall parameters support was actually
exposed to the guest as it is illegal for a guest to use it otherwise --
and we will likely need two checks, for input and output).

Also, (and that's what triggered my comment) all other HV_ACCESS_* in
kvm_get_hv_cpuid() are single bits so my first impression was that you
forgot one bit, but then I saw that you combined them together.

They are two separate things in TLFS. Please use two macros here.

Makes sense. I'll split them and add the checks.

We observed that Windows expects Hyper-V to support XMM params even if
we don't advertise this feature but if userspace wants to hide this
feature and the guest does it anyway, then it makes sense to treat it as
an illegal OP.

Out of pure curiosity, which Windows version behaves like that? And how
does this work with KVM without your patches?

Sane KVM userspaces will certainly expose both XMM input and output
capabilities together but having an ability to hide one or both of them
may come handy while debugging.

Also, we weren't enforcing the rule that enlightenments not exposed to
the guest don't work, even the whole Hyper-V emulation interface was
available to all guests who were smart enough to know how to enable it!
I don't like this for two reasons: security (large attack surface) and
the fact that someone 'smart' may decide to use Hyper-V emulation
features on KVM as 'general purpose' features saying 'they're always
available anyway', this risks becoming an ABI.

Let's at least properly check if the feature was exposed to the guest
for all new enlightenments.

The guest is a Windows Server 2016 on which we are trying to enable VBS
and handle it through the VSM API. When VBS is enabled on the guest, it
starts using many other (new) hypercalls and some of them don't honor
the CPUID bits (4, 15) that indicate the presence of XMM params support.

Looks like guest_cpuid_has() check is for x86 CPU features only (if I'm
not mistaken) and I don't see a suitable alternative that looks into
vcpu->arch.cpuid_entries[]. So I plan to add a new method
hv_guest_cpuid_has() in hyperv.c to have this check; does that sound
right to you?

If you can give a quick go-ahead, I'll make the changes requested so
far and send v2 this series.

Thanks.

Sorry my mistake, guest_cpuid_has() was the wrong function to name. In the
meantime I started working on fine-grained access to the existing
Hyper-V enlightenments as well and I think the best approach would be to
cache CPUID 0x40000003 (EAX, EBX, EDX) in kvm_hv_set_cpuid()  to avoid
looping through all guest CPUID entries on every hypercall. Your check
will then look like

 if (hv_vcpu->cpuid_cache.features_edx & HV_X64_HYPERCALL_XMM_INPUT_AVAILABLE)
 ...


 if (hv_vcpu->cpuid_cache.features_edx & HV_X64_HYPERCALL_XMM_OUTPUT_AVAILABLE)
 ...

We can wrap this into a hv_guest_cpuid_has() helper indeed, it'll look like:

 if (hv_guest_cpuid_has(vcpu, HYPERV_CPUID_FEATURES, CPUID_EDX, HV_X64_HYPERCALL_XMM_INPUT_AVAILABLE))
 ...

but I'm not sure it's worth it, maybe raw check is shorter and better.

I plan to send something out in a day or two, I'll Cc: you. Feel free to
do v2 without this, if your series gets merged first I can just add the
'fine-grained access' to mine.

Thanks!
