Subject[PATCH v3 00/22] AMX Support in KVM
Highly appreciate for your review. We will continue working on
remaining selftest and send out later.

- kvm selftest for AMX is still in progress;

- Trap #NM until write IA32_XFD with a non-zero value (Thomas)
- Revise return value in __xstate_request_perm() (Thomas)
- Revise doc for KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_CPUID (Paolo)
- Add Thomas's reviewed-by on one patch
- Reorder disabling read interception of XFD_ERR patch (Paolo)
- Move disabling r/w interception of XFD from x86.c to vmx.c (Paolo)
- Provide the API doc together with the new KVM_GET_XSAVE2 ioctl (Paolo)
- Make KVM_CHECK_EXTENSION(KVM_CAP_XSAVE2) return minimum size of struct
kvm_xsave (4K) (Paolo)
- Request permission at the start of vm_create_with_vcpus() in selftest
- Request permission conditionally when XFD is supported (Paolo)

- Live migration supported and verified with a selftest
- Rebase to Thomas's new series for guest fpstate reallocation [1]
- Expand fpstate at KVM_SET_CPUID2 instead of when emulating XCR0
and IA32_XFD (Thomas/Paolo)
- Accordingly remove all exit-to-userspace stuff
- Intercept #NM to save guest XFD_ERR and restore host/guest value
at preemption on/off boundary (Thomas)
- Accordingly remove all xfd_err logic in preemption callback and
- Reuse KVM_SET_XSAVE to handle both legacy and expanded buffer (Paolo)
- Don't return dynamic bits w/o prctl() in KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_CPUID (Paolo)
- Check guest permissions for dynamic features in CPUID[0xD] instead
of only for AMX at KVM_SET_CPUID (Paolo)
- Remove dynamic bit check for 32-bit guest in __kvm_set_xcr() (Paolo)
- Fix CPUID emulation for 0x1d and 0x1e (Paolo)
- Move "disable interception" to the end of the series (Paolo)

This series brings AMX (Advanced Matrix eXtensions) virtualization
support to KVM. The preparatory series from Thomas [1] is also included.

A large portion of the changes in this series is to deal with eXtended
Feature Disable (XFD) which allows resizing of the fpstate buffer to
support dynamically-enabled XSTATE features with large state component
(e.g. 8K for AMX).

There are a lot of simplications when comparing v2/v3 to the original
proposal [2] and the first version [3]. Thanks to Thomas and Paolo for
many good suggestions.

The support is based on following key changes:

- Guest permissions for dynamically-enabled XSAVE features

Native tasks have to request permission via prctl() before touching
a dynamic-resized XSTATE compoenent. Introduce guest permissions
for the similar purpose. Userspace VMM is expected to request guest
permission only once when the first vCPU is created.

KVM checks guest permission in KVM_SET_CPUID2. Setting XFD in guest
cpuid w/o proper permissions fails this operation. In the meantime,
unpermitted features are also excluded in KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_CPUID.

- Extend fpstate reallocation mechanism to cover guest fpu

Unlike native tasks which have reallocation triggered from #NM
handler, guest fpstate reallocation is requested by KVM when it
identifies the intention on using dynamically-enabled XSAVE
features inside guest.

Extend fpu core to allow KVM request fpstate buffer expansion
for a guest fpu containter.

- Trigger fpstate reallocation in KVM

This could be done either statically (before guest runs) or
dynamically (in the emulation path). According to discussion [1]
we decide to statically enable all xfeatures allowed by guest perm
in KVM_SET_CPUID2, with fpstate buffer sized accordingly. This spares
a lot of code and also avoid imposing an ordered restore sequence
(XCR0, XFD and XSTATE) to userspace VMM.

- RDMSR/WRMSR emulation for IA32_XFD

Because fpstate expansion is completed in KVM_SET_CPUID2, emulating
r/w access to IA32_XFD simply involves the xfd field in the guest
fpu container. If write and guest fpu is currently active, the
software state (guest_fpstate::xfd and per-cpu xfd cache) is also

- RDMSR/WRMSR emulation for XFD_ERR

When XFD causes an instruction to generate #NM, XFD_ERR contains
information about which disabled state components are being accessed.
It'd be problematic if the XFD_ERR value generated in guest is
consumed/clobbered by the host before the guest itself doing so.

Intercept #NM exception to save the guest XFD_ERR value when write
IA32_XFD with a non-zero value for 1st time. There is at most one
interception per guest task given a dynamic feature.

RDMSR/WRMSR emulation uses the saved value. The host value (always
ZERO outside of the host #NM handler) is restored before enabling
preemption. The saved guest value is restored right before entering
the guest (with preemption disabled).

- Get/set dynamic xfeature state for migration

Introduce new capability (KVM_CAP_XSAVE2) to deal with >4KB fpstate
buffer. Reading this capability returns the size of the current
guest fpstate (e.g. after expansion). Userspace VMM uses a new ioctl
(KVM_GET_XSAVE2) to read guest fpstate from the kernel and reuses
the existing ioctl (KVM_SET_XSAVE) to update guest fpsate to the
kernel. KVM_SET_XSAVE is extended to do properly_sized memdup_user()
based on the guest fpstate.

- Expose related cpuid bits to guest

The last step is to allow exposing XFD, AMX_TILE, AMX_INT8 and
AMX_BF16 in guest cpuid. Adding those bits into kvm_cpu_caps finally
activates all previous logics in this series

- Optimization: disable interception for IA32_XFD

IA32_XFD can be frequently updated by the guest, as it is part of
the task state and swapped in context switch when prev and next have
different XFD setting. Always intercepting WRMSR can easily cause
non-negligible overhead.

Disable r/w emulation for IA32_XFD after intercepting the first
WRMSR(IA32_XFD) with a non-zero value. However MSR passthrough
implies the software state (guest_fpstate::xfd and per-cpu xfd
cache) might be out of sync with MSR. This suggests KVM needs to
re-sync them at VM-exit before preemption is enabled.

To verify AMX virtualization overhead on non-AMX usages, we run the
Phoronix kernel build test in the guest w/ and w/o AMX in cpuid. The
result shows no observable difference between two configurations.

Thanks Jun Nakajima and Kevin Tian for the design suggestions when
this version is being internally worked on.
