Subject[PATCH 0/5] KVM: Move x86 init ops to separate struct
The non-x86 part of this series is wholly contained in patch 01.  Compared
to other recent kvm-wide changes, this one is very straightforward (famous
last words).

Like a few other architectures, e.g. PPC, x86 uses a set of global hooks
to call back into vendor code on demand. A handlful of the x86 hooks are
used only within the scope of kvm_init(). This series moves the init-only
hooks to a separate struct, partly to clean up the code a bit, but mainly
so that the runtime hooks can be made available only after the x86 vendor
has completed its ->hardware_setup(). While working on a different series
I spent a fair bit of time scratching my as to why a kvm_x86_ops wasn't
working, and eventually realized VMX's callback wasn't "ready" because the
vmcs_config hadn't yet been populated.

Due to lack of a cross-compiling setup, the non-x86 changes in patch 01
are untested.

The SVM changes in patch 02 are fairly well tested, e.g. fudged things
enough to ensure KVM didn't explode on a null pointer.

Patch 05 is a bit scary as a rogue dereference of kvm_x86_ops before
->hardware_setup() will crash KVM (maybe the kernel?). I didn't find any
obvious ways to use kvm_x86_ops on AMD, and tested on a few different
Intel CPUs, so I'm reasonably confident that there are no existing

Sean Christopherson (5):
KVM: Pass kvm_init()'s opaque param to additional arch funcs
KVM: x86: Move init-only kvm_x86_ops to separate struct
KVM: VMX: Move hardware_setup() definition below vmx_x86_ops
KVM: VMX: Configure runtime hooks using vmx_x86_ops
KVM: x86: Set kvm_x86_ops only after ->hardware_setup() completes
