Subject[PATCH 1/2] KVM: nVMX: Always write vmcs02.GUEST_CR3 during nested VM-Enter
Date
Write the desired L2 CR3 into vmcs02.GUEST_CR3 during nested VM-Enter
isntead of deferring the VMWRITE until vmx_set_cr3(). If the VMWRITE
is deferred, then KVM can consume a stale vmcs02.GUEST_CR3 when it
refreshes vmcs12->guest_cr3 during nested_vmx_vmexit() if the emulated
VM-Exit occurs without actually entering L2, e.g. if the nested run
is squashed because L2 is being put into HLT.

In an ideal world where EPT *requires* unrestricted guest (and vice
versa), VMX could handle CR3 similar to how it handles RSP and RIP,
e.g. mark CR3 dirty and conditionally load it at vmx_vcpu_run(). But
the unrestricted guest silliness complicates the dirty tracking logic
to the point that explicitly handling vmcs02.GUEST_CR3 during nested
VM-Enter is a simpler overall implementation.
