Subject[PATCH v3 00/15] KVM: arm64: Introduce kvm_share_hyp()
From
Hi all,

This is v3 of the series previously posted here:

https://lore.kernel.org/kvmarm/20211019121304.2732332-1-qperret@google.com/

This series implements an unshare hypercall at EL2 in nVHE protected
mode, and makes use of it to unmmap guest-specific data-structures from
EL2 stage-1 during guest tear-down. Crucially, the implementation of the
share and unshare routines use page refcounts in the host kernel to
avoid accidentally unmapping data-structures that overlap a common page.

This series has two main benefits. Firstly it allows EL2 to track the
state of shared pages cleanly, as they can now transition from SHARED
back to OWNED. This will simplify permission checks once e.g. pkvm
implements a donation hcall to provide memory to protected guests, as
there should then be no reason for the host to donate a page that is
currently marked shared. And secondly, it avoids having dangling
mappings in the hypervisor's stage-1, which should be a good idea from
a security perspective as the hypervisor is obviously running with
elevated privileges. And perhaps worth noting is that this also
refactors the EL2 page-tracking checks in a more scalable way, which
should allow to implement other memory transitions (host donating memory
to a guest, a guest sharing back with the host, ...) much more easily in
the future.

Changes since v2:

- Added a check in kvm_share_hyp() to prevent sharing vmalloc pages;

- Rebased on kvmarm/next, which contains Marc's rework of FPSIMD/SVE
tracking [1].

Thanks!
Quentin
