SubjectRe: [9/8] KVM: x86: limit MSR_IA32_SPEC_CTRL access based on CPUID availability
It's really hard to tell which patches are being proposed for which
repositories, but assuming that everything else is correct, I don't
think your condition is adequate. What if the physical CPU and the
virtual CPU both have CPUID.(EAX=7H,ECX=0):EDX[26], but only the
physical CPU has CPUID.(EAX=7H,ECX=0):EDX[27]? If the guest has write
access to MSR_IA32_SPEC_CTRL, it can set MSR_IA32_SPEC_CTRL[1]
(STIBP), even though setting that bit in the guest should raise #GP.
