Subject[PATCH 0/5] Fix nested VMX controls MSRs
Date
The first three patches fix a issue for the nested VMX controls MSRs. The
issue happens when I use QEMU to run nested VM. The VM_{ENTRY,
EXIT}_LOAD_IA32_PERF_GLOBAL_CTRL and VM_{ENTRY_LOAD, EXIT_CLEAR}_BNDCFGS
in L1 MSR_IA32_VMX_TRUE_{ENTRY, EXIT}_CTLS MSR are always cleared
regardless of whether it supports in L1. This is because QEMU gets the
nested VMX MSRs from vmcs_config.nested_vmx_msrs which doesn't expose
these two fields. Then, when QEMU initializes the features MSRs after
SET_CPUID, it will override the nested VMX MSR values which has been
updated according to guest CPUID during SET_CPUID. This patch series
just expose the missing fields in nested VMX {ENTRY, EXIT} controls
MSR and adds the support to update nested VMX MSRs after set_vmx_msrs.

The last two patches are a minor fix and cleanup.

KVM: nVMX: Fix VMX controls MSRs setup when nested VMX enabled
KVM: nVMX: Verify the VMX controls MSRs with the global capability
when setting VMX MSRs
KVM: nVMX: Update VMX controls MSR according to guest CPUID after
setting VMX MSRs
KVM: nVMX: Fix the update value of nested load IA32_PERF_GLOBAL_CTRL
control
KVM: nVMX: Simplify the initialization of nested_vmx_msrs
