Subject[PATCH 4.4 065/162] KVM: x86: fix presentation of TSX feature in ARCH_CAPABILITIES
Date
From: Paolo Bonzini <pbonzini@redhat.com>

commit cbbaa2727aa3ae9e0a844803da7cef7fd3b94f2b upstream.

KVM does not implement MSR_IA32_TSX_CTRL, so it must not be presented
to the guests. It is also confusing to have !ARCH_CAP_TSX_CTRL_MSR &&
!RTM && ARCH_CAP_TAA_NO: lack of MSR_IA32_TSX_CTRL suggests TSX was not
hidden (it actually was), yet the value says that TSX is not vulnerable
to microarchitectural data sampling. Fix both.
