Subject[PATCH v3 00/10] arm64: Stolen time support
Date
This series add support for paravirtualized time for arm64 guests and
KVM hosts following the specification in Arm's document DEN 0057A:

https://developer.arm.com/docs/den0057/a

It implements support for stolen time, allowing the guest to
identify time when it is forcibly not executing.

It doesn't implement support for Live Physical Time (LPT) as there are
some concerns about the overheads and approach in the above
specification, and I expect an updated version of the specification to
be released soon with just the stolen time parts.

NOTE: Patches 8 and 9 will conflict with Mark Rutland's series[1] cleaning
up the SMCCC conduit. I do feel that the addition of an _invoke() call
makes a number of call sites cleaner and it should be possible to
integrate both this and Mark's other cleanups.

Also available as a git tree:
git://linux-arm.org/linux-sp.git stolen_time/v3

Changes from v2:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20190819140436.12207-1-steven.price@arm.com/
* Switched from using gfn_to_hva_cache to a new macro kvm_put_guest()
that can provide the single-copy atomicity required (on arm64). This
macro is added in patch 4.
* Tidied up the locking for kvm_update_stolen_time().
pagefault_disable() was unnecessary and the caller didn't need to
take kvm->srcu as the function does it itself.
* Removed struct kvm_arch_pvtime from the arm implementation, replaced
instead with inline static functions which are empty for arm.
* Fixed a few checkpatch --strict warnings.

Changes from v1:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20190802145017.42543-1-steven.price@arm.com/
* Host kernel no longer allocates the stolen time structure, instead it
is allocated by user space. This means the save/restore functionality
can be removed.
* Refactored the code so arm has stub implementations and to avoid
initcall
* Rebased to pick up Documentation/{virt->virtual} change
* Bunch of typo fixes
