Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 080/123] KVM: VMX: Update shared MSRs to be saved/restored on MSR_EFER.LMA changes
Date
From: Liran Alon <liran.alon@oracle.com>

[ Upstream commit f48b4711dd6e1cf282f9dfd159c14a305909c97c ]

When guest transitions from/to long-mode by modifying MSR_EFER.LMA,
the list of shared MSRs to be saved/restored on guest<->host
transitions is updated (See vmx_set_efer() call to setup_msrs()).

On every entry to guest, vcpu_enter_guest() calls
vmx_prepare_switch_to_guest(). This function should also take care
of setting the shared MSRs to be saved/restored. However, the
function does nothing in case we are already running with loaded
guest state (vmx->loaded_cpu_state != NULL).

This means that even when guest modifies MSR_EFER.LMA which results
in updating the list of shared MSRs, it isn't being taken into account
by vmx_prepare_switch_to_guest() because it happens while we are
running with loaded guest state.

To fix above mentioned issue, add a flag to mark that the list of
shared MSRs has been updated and modify vmx_prepare_switch_to_guest()
to set shared MSRs when running with host state *OR* list of shared
MSRs has been updated.

Note that this issue was mistakenly introduced by commit
678e315e78a7 ("KVM: vmx: add dedicated utility to access guest's
kernel_gs_base") because previously vmx_set_efer() always called
vmx_load_host_state() which resulted in vmx_prepare_switch_to_guest() to
set shared MSRs.
