Subject[PATCH v2 00/13] KVM: x86: Extend Spectre-v1 mitigation
From
From: Nick Finco <nifi@google.com>

This extends the Spectre-v1 mitigation introduced in
commit 75f139aaf896 ("KVM: x86: Add memory barrier on vmcs field lookup")
and commit 085331dfc6bb ("x86/kvm: Update spectre-v1 mitigation") in light
of the Spectre-v1/L1TF combination described here:
https://xenbits.xen.org/xsa/advisory-289.html

As reported in the link, an attacker can use the cache-load part of a
Spectre-v1 gadget to bring memory into the L1 cache, then use L1TF to
leak the loaded memory. Note that this attack is not fully mitigated by
core scheduling; firstly when "kvm-intel.vmentry_l1d_flush" is not set
to "always", an attacker could use L1TF on the same thread that loaded the
memory values in the cache on paths that do not flush the L1 cache on
VMEntry. Otherwise, an attacker could perform this attack using a
collusion of two sibling hyperthreads: one that loads memory values in
the cache during VMExit handling and another that performs L1TF to leak
them.

This patch uses array_index_nospec() to prevent index computations from
causing speculative loads into the L1 cache. These cases involve a
bounds check followed by a memory read using the index; this is more
common than the full Spectre-v1 pattern. In some cases, the index
computation can be eliminated entirely by small amounts of refactoring.
