Subject[PATCH v6 00/17] Introducing AMD x2AVIC and hybrid-AVIC modes
Introducing support for AMD x2APIC virtualization. This feature is
indicated by the CPUID Fn8000_000A EDX[14], and it can be activated
by setting bit 31 (enable AVIC) and bit 30 (x2APIC mode) of VMCB
offset 60h.

With x2AVIC support, the guest local APIC can be fully virtualized in
both xAPIC and x2APIC modes, and the mode can be changed during runtime.
For example, when AVIC is enabled, the hypervisor set VMCB bit 31
to activate AVIC for each vCPU. Then, it keeps track of each vCPU's
APIC mode, and updates VMCB bit 30 to enable/disable x2APIC
virtualization mode accordingly.

Besides setting bit VMCB bit 30 and 31, for x2AVIC, kvm_amd driver needs
to disable interception for the x2APIC MSR range to allow AVIC hardware
to virtualize register accesses.

This series also introduce a partial APIC virtualization (hybrid-AVIC)
mode, where APIC register accesses are trapped (i.e. not virtualized
by hardware), but leverage AVIC doorbell for interrupt injection.
This eliminates need to disable x2APIC in the guest on system without
x2AVIC support. (Note: suggested by Maxim)

Testing for v5:
* Test partial AVIC mode by launching a VM with x2APIC mode
* Tested booting a Linux VM with x2APIC physical and logical modes upto 512 vCPUs.
* Test the following nested SVM test use cases:

L0 | L1 | L2
hybrid-AVIC | x2APIC | APIC
hybrid-AVIC | x2APIC | x2APIC
x2AVIC | x2APIC | x2APIC

Changes from v5:
* Re-order patch 16 to 10
* Patch 11: Update commit message

Changes from v4:
* Patch 3: Move enum_avic_modes definition to svm.h
* Patch 10: Rename avic_set_x2apic_msr_interception to
svm_set_x2apic_msr_interception and move it to svm.c
to simplify the struct svm_direct_access_msrs declaration.
* Patch 16: New from Maxim
* Patch 17: New from Maxim

Best Regards,
