Correct the logic in intel_pmu_set_msr() for fixed and general purpose
counters. This was recently changed to set pmc->counter without taking
in to account the value of pmc_read_counter() which will be incorrect if
the counter is currently running and non-zero; this changes back to the
old logic which accounted for the value of currently running counters.

I think this best written as it was before commit 2924b52117:

			if (!msr_info->host_initiated)
				data = (s64)(s32)data;
			pmc->counter += data - pmc_read_counter(pmc);

Do you have a testcase?

Sorry - I forgot to switch to plain text mode on my first reply.

Sounds good to me.

> Do you have a testcase?
I added a testcase to kvm-unit-tests/x86/pmu.c that fails without this
patch and passes with it.
Should I send out that patch now?

I sent out the test a couple days ago and you queued it (commit
b9624f3f34bd "Test WRMSR on a running counter").
Are there any other changes that I should make?

Thanks,
Eric
