Subject[PATCH v2 09/10] KVM: arm/arm64: Document KVM_DEV_ARM_ITS_CTRL_RESET
Date
At the moment, the in-kernel emulated ITS is not properly reset.
On guest restart/reset some registers keep their old values and
internal structures like device, ITE, collection lists are not freed.

This may lead to various bugs. Among them, we can have incorrect state
backup or failure when saving the ITS state at early guest boot stage.

This patch documents a new attribute, KVM_DEV_ARM_ITS_CTRL_RESET in
the KVM_DEV_ARM_VGIC_GRP_CTRL group.

Upon this action, we can reset registers and especially those
pointing to tables previously allocated by the guest and free
the internal data structures storing the list of devices, collections
and lpis.
