Subject[PATCH V2 2/3] KVM: x86/mmu: Ensure pae_root to be reconstructed for shadow paging if the guest PDPTEs is changed
Date
From: Lai Jiangshan <laijs@linux.alibaba.com>

For shadow paging, the pae_root needs to be reconstructed before the
coming VMENTER if the guest PDPTEs is changed.

But not all paths that call load_pdptrs() will cause the pae_root to be
reconstructed. Normally, kvm_mmu_reset_context() and kvm_mmu_free_roots()
are used to launch later reconstruction.

The commit d81135a57aa6("KVM: x86: do not reset mmu if CR0.CD and
CR0.NW are changed") skips kvm_mmu_reset_context() after load_pdptrs()
when changing CR0.CD and CR0.NW.

The commit 21823fbda552("KVM: x86: Invalidate all PGDs for the current
PCID on MOV CR3 w/ flush") skips kvm_mmu_free_roots() after
load_pdptrs() when rewriting the CR3 with the same value.

The commit a91a7c709600("KVM: X86: Don't reset mmu context when
toggling X86_CR4_PGE") skips kvm_mmu_reset_context() after
load_pdptrs() when changing CR4.PGE.

Guests like linux would keep the PDPTEs unchanged for every instance of
pagetable, so this missing reconstruction has no problem for linux
guests.
