Subject[PATCH] KVM: PPC: Book3S HV: Remove vcpu->arch.dec usage
On Book3S in HV mode, we don't use the vcpu->arch.dec field at all.
Instead, all logic is built around vcpu->arch.dec_expires.

So let's remove the one remaining piece of code that was setting it.

Signed-off-by: Alexander Graf <>


Looking through the DEC logic, I fail to see any code that allows
save or restore of DEC. Do we maybe miss out on that register for
(live) migration?
