[PATCH v2 00/12] KVM/X86: Introduce a new guest mapping interface




Guest memory can either be directly managed by the kernel (i.e. have a "struct
page") or they can simply live outside kernel control (i.e. do not have a
"struct page"). KVM mostly support these two modes, except in a few places
where the code seems to assume that guest memory must have a "struct page".

This patchset introduces a new mapping interface to map guest memory into host
kernel memory which also supports PFN-based memory (i.e. memory without 'struct
page'). It also converts all offending code to this interface or simply
read/write directly from guest memory.

As far as I can see all offending code is now fixed except the APIC-access page
which I will handle in a seperate patch.

Filippo Sironi (1):
  X86/KVM: Handle PFNs outside of kernel reach when touching GPTEs

KarimAllah Ahmed (11):
  X86/nVMX: handle_vmon: Read 4 bytes from guest memory
  X86/nVMX: handle_vmptrld: Copy the VMCS12 directly from guest memory
  X86/nVMX: Update the PML table without mapping and unmapping the page
  KVM: Introduce a new guest mapping API
  KVM/nVMX: Use kvm_vcpu_map when mapping the L1 MSR bitmap
  KVM/nVMX: Use kvm_vcpu_map when mapping the virtual APIC page
  KVM/nVMX: Use kvm_vcpu_map when mapping the posted interrupt
    descriptor table
  KVM/X86: Use kvm_vcpu_map in emulator_cmpxchg_emulated
  KVM/X86: hyperv: Use kvm_vcpu_map in synic_clear_sint_msg_pending
  KVM/X86: hyperv: Use kvm_vcpu_map in synic_deliver_msg
  KVM/nSVM: Use the new mapping API for mapping guest memory
